Don't Call Me That or Do That (at Work)

I'm no feminist (I believe gender roles can be useful in keeping life organized) but there are things that really bother me as a female in the workplace:

1. Don't touch me. EVER. Not on the back, not on the arm, and most certainly not on the neck.
2. I am not a secretary nor an assistant. Don't call me an assistant because I'm a female in an office and you're unsure of my title. Just because Mad Men represents the creative agency world doesn't mean that's how the industry still works.
3. Don't assume I don't know what you're talking about. Because I do. And if I don't, it's because I'm bored and simply don't care.

Understandably your article helped me very much in my college assignment. Hats incorrect to you enter, wish look ahead for more cognate articles without delay as its anecdote of my favourite subject-matter to read.
