I am NOT an idiot!….Administrative Assistant

I have been at my present company for 4 1/2 years. And I have hated every minute of it.

I started as a temp admin assistant for a girl on maternity leave. I had lost my previous job as an admin asst/billing asst/slug/slave/peon because I told them all to kiss off, in a nice way, of course.

What is it, that people think you’re an idiot if you are an admin/clerical person?! So, what do I do, I get another job as an admin, because that’s all I know how to do, and I do it well.

About two years ago, I had an opportunity to move to another department, a more hands-on job. So I took it.

Big mistake! I calibrate electronic equipment all day, every day. I plug stuff in and it runs a test, if it passes it goes out and if not, we charge the customer outrageous sums of money to fix it.

I could deal with the monotony but not with the condescending, chauvinistic attitude of my so-called “superiors” What a bunch of ass-kissing, butt-sucking jerk-offs. I hate management, I’ll starve before I become one of them.

I stay for the money and benefits and the lax dress code. I work near DC, so I could get another admin job in a heartbeat. But it would be the same ol’ crap in a different location.

So, I’m going back to school and hope to finish my nursing clinicals in 2 years. I’ll be dead shortly after I finish, knowing my luck, but hopefully this nursing thing is not a big mistake, because if it is, I don’t know what I’ll do. I’ll be too old to sell my body by that time.

Hopefully, if I’m still alive in 30 years, my kid will be rich enough to support my tired old bones. Hey, even if she’s not, oh well, I’ll worry about that in about 25 years.
