Bizarre Boss Requests

In honor of Administrative Professionals Week, which is this week, asked administrative assistants what the craziest thing was that they did for their boss.  Here are a few of the many responses they received:

  • Drop off a pet’s stool sample at the vet. “He left the container on my desk while I was having lunch.”
  • Call around for a used toilet to replace one that had broken in the boss’s rental house.
  • Send fake rejection letters from universities to the boss’s daughter as a joke.
  • Throw a surprise party for an up-and-coming vice president’s dog.
  • Spray the boss’s bald head with sunscreen.
