Awesomeness, Part IV: Reasons Being Secretary X is Awesome

(1) You get to keep your job even when you back-talk to your boss, throw a keyboard at Partner's Daughter, refuse to do your job, and refuse to be at the office before 9:00 or 10:00, or noon, without a call to the office to let them know if/when you'll be in.

(2) You throw rules to the wind when you file documents with the court. Besides, that's why B-Dub carries malpractice insurance, and he's not going to fire you anyways.

(3) Calendaring is merely a suggestion. If you don't want to do it, there is malpractice insurance for that too. Again, not going to get fired.

(4) You have enough attitude for the whole firm. Why change? Attitudes bring color into the office, or is that darkness?

(5) You are apparently responsible to decide whether your supervisors' instructions are important enough to follow.

(6) You can wear jeans every day because all the partners are too scared of you to do anything about it.

(7) Respect for other people is a rule for other people.

(8) If you are assigned work that you don't want to do, tell them you aren't going to get to it and they should handle it themselves if they want it done. Hey, they should be grateful you're telling them now so they can plan accordingly and not let it slip through the cracks, right?
