From the Hollywood assistant trenches, a hilarious guide to surviving life at the bottom of the totem pole. I will not make you sort my MaMs by color. I will not take off four hours in the middle of the day to go shopping and then announce upon my return that a€œita€™s going to be a late onea€”we need to catch up!a€ I will not request that you create and maintain my online dating profile. Welcome to the wickedly funny world of To My Assistant, where overworked and underappreciated assistants finally get their due. Wea€™ve all been there. You might even be there right now. Do you depend upon your college education to handle crucial business decisions such as memorizing your bossa€™ lunch order, trying to schedule four meetings where only one can go, and helping your boss detag Facebook photos? Or what about those awesome days when youa€™re instructed to a€œsend me that thing from a week ago, a€ a€œcall that guy I wanted to call, a€ or a€œbook me a table at that restaurant that girl said was really good, a€ and are then berated when youa€™re not able to figure out immediately what your boss is talking about? To My Assistant compiles everything that disgruntled and optimistic assistants everywhere promise NEVER TO DO when, one day, they have assistants of their own. From ridiculous requests and backhanded compliments to outright insults, and complete with helpful tips and tricks for Boss Wranglinga€”like what you can learn about your bossa€™s mood from his meal choices, how to navigate such professional minefields as requests for your opinion and interactions with your bossa€™s children and pets, and advanced translation techniques for incoherent e-mails and text messagesa€”these pages are just what the underpaid masses need to survive (and laugh at) the daily injustices of life at the bottom of the totem pole.

Preparation (Tragically Forgotten) When la#39;m going on a multi-country business trip, and you make me a binder ... Passport Photos (unprofessional Retouching) I will not bring you the pictures I had taken at CVS for my passport ... when the only a€œmagica€ youa#39;ve ever done in Photoshop was to take a really big image file and turn it into a smaller image file.
