When assistants bite: venom from the ground up
The most typical of which being employer-employee abuse, surely, but I've also been privy to invidious antics from those who climbed up the workplace food chain rather quickly, and with staggering results. I'm not sure what kind of voodoo these PAs were working, but their recalcitrance was bold, perhaps cruel; however, the brazen attitudes behind these quips was often noticed and rewarded by one of the higher-ups' higher-ups, and suddenly these PAs' initials were reversed and they abandoned their craft service duties to some properly broken poor dear. Leaving the rest of us to wonder: is taking a proactive stance against one's employer always thusly honored? Would love to hear from anyone who has had—or been stationed proximally to—any irreverent assistants.
