PAs should look out for each other. After all, no one else is.
The first, most important thing you can do for your fellow PAs is to make sure they are fed.
“Why is this a problem?” you might ask. There’s always food around a TV show. True, there’s always snacks in the kitchen, but I’m talking about lunch. It’s not uncommon to get sent out on a run just before lunch arrives; by the time you get back, everyone and their pet locust will have eaten every last scrap of food.
If you’re not the one sent on the mid-day run, it’s up to you to look out for your fellow PA. Grab a plate (or a to-go box, if you’re eating off the lunch truck), and pack a lunch. If you don’t know what the other PA likes, grab a little of everything. Even if they eat only half of what you saved, the fact that you thought about them will surely make their day.
We’re in this together.
