The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Yesterday, all during "Administrative Professional Day", NPR was running spots sponsored by Mark Downs Furniture.

Mark Downs was reminding people of the "importance" of the day, and urged people to remember that a new office chair makes a wonderful gift "for the Administrative Professional in your life", and that they conveniently have about a gagillion of the things in stock and ready to go.

Excuse me, but getting your assistant a chair as a gift for Administrative Professional day is right up there with getting the wifey a new vacuum cleaner for her birthday.

Get them a new chair to keep YOUR ass out of a Disability / Worker's Comp case. Give them flowers or a restaurant gift certificate because you actually give a damn and appreciate what they do for you.

    If I ever get married, I'm going to give my spouse the gift of lawn implements.
