Last Secretary’s Day, a special edition of Fed-Up Secretary was distributed for free to over 500 office workers in Chicago’s downtown “Loop” area. Containing highlights from F-U.S. #1, the special preview edition advocated that the celebration of Secretaries not be confined to one day of the year. Editor Sally Suarez noted that “flowers and cards do not make up for the shitty treatment we get the rest of the year. We practically run the companies we work for! With this in mind, we say every day should be Secretary’s Day!” The event touched off a whirl-wind of media attention and is expected to draw more disgruntled office workers into the fold of Fed-Up Secretary contributors. Secretaries with articles of interest should send submissions to Fed-Up Secretary.

A helpful tip: Drink plenty of milk before calling in “sick.” Dairy products can cause an accumulation of mucus, which will make your claim of illness sound more realistic over the phone!
