Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
Today , April 27th, is a wonderfully special day for not only Bacon’s mom but for all of the Administrative Professionals out there in the world. Whether you call them secretaries, administrative assistants or my personal favorite Octopuses, they do not get enough praise for what they do. They are the office keepers, the schedulers, the reminders, the speed typists – the office jugglers. They not only keep the work load going but they remind their bosses of their personal dates to remember and patch up the boo-boos that happen while at work. They should be praised daily and reminded of their wonders.
So by all means, don’t forget your office Octopus. Show them your gratitude. A small token of a card, a cup of coffee, a gift card, flowers or take them to lunch. Just don’t forget that special worker.
And to mom and everyone else – Happy Secretary/Administrative/Octopus Day. We here at the Hotel Thompson wish you all the best today. You are so worthy – we definitely couldn’t live without you!

How true! It would be nice if Donald Trump stuck a pin in his ego for a day and praised his assistant(s). We hope your mom’s boss does thank/credit her.

It would be awesome if he did but we know he won’t. Trump walks to a different beat. As far as mom’s bosses, shaking my head. I don’t have much hope which is very sad for all that she does. XOXO – Bacon

This is not a day that is observed in Germany, which is a shame. I am working in an office, too.

I’m sorry my friend. It might as well not be a holiday here in the States. I talked to mom a while ago. Her office has done nothing. Is it too much to ask for to remember one day that is special to office staff when you ask so much of them? I’m very sad for my mom and you. XOXO – Bacon

Happy Administrative Professional Day!
Lady runs her own business so she is everything (as the only person who works for it). She will celebrate her administrative side today!

She should! She deserves something special and to be recognized. Tell her this oinker said, “Happy Administrative Professionals Day!” XOXO – Bacon

Happy Admin Prof day for those who keep everything running! 😀

Thank you Auntie Sharon. I really appreciate that. It was such a sad place last night with mom. You know those people at work places that everyone goes to to ask questions and get help or if anyone has computer problems that person fixes it – that’s my mom. She honestly is an Octopus there. XOXO – Bacon

Happy Administrative Professionals Day and a BIG THANK YOU to all who work for us. It’s sad that our modern society takes anything for granted… we only see the outcome but not the people who are behind every single sheet of paper…

This is so true brother. We truly believe that behind every good boss is a secretary that does all of the paperwork. It’s sad they didn’t remember mom yesterday on the official day of this great holiday. XOXO – Bacon

I used to be an “Office Administrator / Administrative Assistant / Office Manager” – so, a belated ‘Admin Prof Day’ to all who still endure the joys and the pains of the business!

aaww thanks my friend. I really appreciate that. Mom’s work still has never said anything. At this point, I don’t think they will. XOXO – Bacon

That figures…the admins get overlooked, even on the day that is supposed to honour them! I guess it doesn’t help that it always happens mid-week, eh?

Nods head. You know the official date is Wednesday but usually people celebrate the entire week. Nada – nothing has been said at all. But that’s okay. Because when Bosses Day rolls around guess what? It’s just another day.
05/03/2016 at 5:37 pm
LOL – exactly! I keep thinking that Bosses Day was either the week before, or the week after Admin Professionals Day, IIRC…

It’s in October and will now be just another day in my book – LOL. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM
