Because who doesn't love a 1960s secretary?

Thursday, March 28, 2013

So Matt got fired when they found out his kidneys weren't stolen.

I know. It was a letdown for all of us.

But his firing left a vacancy at the front desk and it was causing a lot of stress on the office so my co-worker and I volunteered to help out.

I'd like to say it was out of the goodness of our hearts but that would be a lie.

Her:  "Oooh!  LET'S COORDINATE OUTFITS! Secretary style!"

Me:  "OMG! YES! Pencil skirts?"

Her:  "As if you had to ask."

Me:  "We need nude pantyhose. That we bought in an egg-shaped container."

Her:  "Let's pull our hair back and wear our glasses."

Me: "I'm going to carry a folder around in my arms all day.  And pretend to take notes every time people talk to me."

Her:  "We should offer people coffee when they come in."

Me:  "Squeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!   This is going to be the most fun Monday EVVVVAAAA!!!"

So Monday rolls around......
We got nothing done in regards to our real everyday work.  
However? Front desk style? We killed it.

We even offered coffee to the FedEx guy.

At the end of the day, we decided to send a survey to the office.

1.  How stylish do you think the front desk was today?
a. Very stylish
b. Extremely stylish
c. Like a runway at NYC Fashion Week.

2. Did you receive calls transferred to you?
a. Yes, and the person who transferred it to me was so upbeat and friendly!
b. Yes, and it was an absolute pleasure to receive the calls from the front desk!
c. All of the above.

3. How well did the customer service representatives at the front desk listen to you?
a. Extremely well
b. Very well
c. I felt like I was talking to Oprah.

4. How knowledgeable were the customer service representatives at the front desk?
a. Extremely knowledgable
b. Very knowledgable
c. Rocket scientists come to mind.

5. How helpful were the customer service representatives at the front desk?
a. Extremely helpful
b. Very helpful
c. Not only helpful, but so STYLISH!

We weren't asked to help out again.
Clearly, we should have asked the FedEx guy to take the survey instead.
