GET THE F*CK OUT.  Seriously.  I am suuuure they don’t pay you well enough to play their games.  FFS.  You weren’t on emails on Tuesday NIGHT and that was a burden?  You’re their executive assistant, not their personal assistant.  Big dif.

Wow, sweet and sour sauce? You are his maid, not an assistant. Did you watch the movie… “The Devil wears Prada” with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway?

I suggest you do if you didn’t yet, it sounds like you are a duplicate of that movie except your boss is male!

Those guys are PSYCHOTIC!  I’ve never heard of anyone treating an employee so horribly, it almost doesn’t even sound real.  WTF?!?   Please take WillyNilly’s advice and find another job ASAP!!

You need to get out of there.  Start looking now.  If they’re already making you do things they SAID you wouldn’t have to, then it can only get worse from there!  Had they wanted a personal assistant to take care of all their personal needs (such as food, etc.) then they should have hired one instead of an executive assistant, who would take care of business stuff.  The whole not wanting to use an intern for getting them food, etc. is odd to me, since that’s what most interns really do, they are basically the office go-for’s.

 

And since when is going out drinking considered part of your job?  These people sound ridiculous.

I’m really really glad you’re not looking for advice on how to deal with a situation as ridiculous as McDonalds sauce demands, but rather that you recognize it’s time to move on to the next opportunity… I’m sorry, is this 1960?  People are still being send out for lunch now?  and MCDONALDS??  this guy has the entitlement level of a Rockafeller, and the budget of a Hatfield.

Anywho… I have a totaly awful Frakenmeme to inspire you.

Girl, you have so much grounds for an EEOC complaint it’s not even funny. I would look up the nearest field office and go TODAY to see about filing a complaint. File on the basis of discrimination based on gender. Once they get the complaint, they (your employer) can’t do anything about it – if they do, you go back and file on the basis of retailiation. Get yourself a lawyer, too.

If you have an HR office, you should absolutely inform them of this as well.

Also, if you are answering work calls/emails on time off if you are non-exempt (ie, paid hourly, eligible for overtime – which you should be non-exempt if you’re an assistant), then they legally have to pay you for that time. It’s a hot button issue in the HR world right now, but it’d be an easy claim to make. PM me for more info if you’d like.

@StL.Ashley:  Wait. Where is gender discrimination? How did I miss that?
