my personal assistant

Once I started working from home, I decided I could really benefit from an assistant. I went through a tedious hiring process, interviewing candidate after candidate, but finally found an assistant that I felt was right for the job...

He started out okay. Updating me on my daily to-do list every morning... Taking notes... And overall, being very focused on the task at hand. However... lately, I've been noticing some disapproving behavior from my new assistant.

For one, he's been drinking way too much Dr. Pepper, usually causing a massive sugar crash in the afternoon.

He's been caught sleeping on the job on numerous occasions.

I've even had recent complaints about his poor customer service.

I've thought about hiring a new assistant, but I'm not sure that I could find another one that would work solely for cat food and a little love and attention...

Little Cat is far too cute to cut loose. I love that he shares your affection for Dr. Pepper and handles your customer service issues...although in a somewhat suspect manner! enjoy the fall festival this weekend. love those too!

I just happen to have an assistant for the assistant... if you should need some more help. I could ship you my new found kitty that would make a great assistant to yours...ha!
