I realize this is a vent but just wanted to say, I’m an assistant, and my boss is not my dad but he does similar things -checks over my emails and tells me what I did wrong, will call me up frantic on a saturday night while I am out with friends because he can’t find a stapler and needs me to get there asap, I get yelled at when he doesn’t tell me things but “I SHOULD JUST KNOW!” Just today he asked me to print him out directions but hung up on me before I could get the addresses. I literally had to guess where he was going and print up about 20 different options, luckily I got one right.

Being an assistant means dying a little inside…

Being an assistant is hard! I totally feel for you.

One time I was admin assistant at an office and I didn’t really get much training but I was just expected to know what he wanted, when and how even at my first time doing tasks. I had to be a mind reader and know what he wanted half the time. He would give me a task, tell me how to do it, I would do it, then he would change his mind and I did it the wrong way, not his fault that he changed his mind.

Just remember you will have your license soon and then you can have your own assistant to torture one day!!
