The other PAs and I got an annoying boss-emails today. You know, the kind that starts with, “Just a reminder…”, and then goes on to re-explain all the basic PA duties that you already do.
This kind of note always fills me with a combination of fear and annoyance. Why is he reminding me to clean up the kitchen after lunch? I already did that. Am I not doing it fast enough? Thoroughly enough? What’s the problem?
I think it comes from a desire to not pick on any one PA. I appreciate the sentiment, but I hate being made to feel like I’ve done something wrong when I haven’t.
