“When things haven’t gone well for you, call in a secretary or a staff man and chew him out. You will sleep better and they will appreciate the attention.” U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson
Happy Secretary’s Day!
But wait, its Administrative Professionals Day? What the heck?!? What’s the difference?
The difference is that there’s more to say than the word secretary.
The gorilla shaped idiots who thought of political correctness said that it is better and more legal to say administrative professional than secretary.
I think that political correctness is the biggest joke since the time that people have been inquiring as to why the chicken crossed the road.
The English language was just fine without political correctness!!! Granted there may or may not have been a few terms that would threaten a person’s individuality by offending their gender or whatever, but secretary is not a word that is offensive at all!
How in the world is the word library offensive? Now its an educational resource center. GIMME A BREAK!!! We already know that the resources inside of a library are educational.
Even in my own world, other people believe that it is better to use different terms rather than use the term physically handicapped. I am NOT “differently abled”!!!!!!!
So you see the only thing that political correctness does, is make you have to say more words to describe something that had a perfectly good definition in the first place that could be defined in a word.
But still no matter what they call them, today is the day to celebrate those who help out all day long in the work place.
