Is Administrative Professionals Day an Urban Myth at Your Firm?

I heard from a few of my readers that Administrative Professionals Day is an urban myth in their firms. And then I heard from a few more who reiterated their desire not to be acknowledged on what some people still refer to as “National Secretaries Day”.

So I thought some of you, especially if you were forgotten (or are still mad that you were included) might need a good belly laugh to get through the rest of the week, and found these funny Administrative Professional Week links just for you:

TV’s Top 15 Administrative Professionals, http://www.tv.com/tvs-top-15-administrative-professionals/story/22500.html (I think Betty White’s brief but memorable turn as Alan Shore’s legal secretary should have been included.) I still love this scene where Catherine Piper, as played by White, tells Shore that she understands him completely in the initial interview:

Local men find their feminine sides for beauty pageant, http://www.newbernsj.com/news/photogallery-86857-href-beauty.html (I love that county attorney Jim Hicks of New Bern, North Carolina, was willing to dress as a woman to entertain 300 administrative assistants, but anybody else got a yen for a Krispy Kreme donut?)
