An Office Filled with Scandal

Last month our company was in quite a panic. It was revealed that our secretary had been having an affair with one of the higher ups at the company. Per the company’s rules, this is strictly forbidden, and anyone who violates this policy will be be fired. Both the secretary and the higher up were fired. Since we needed a secretary to fill the shoes of the old one, we had to hire one from company secretarial services. It was a shame what happened, because the old secretary was great at her job, but I guess when you can’t control your urges, you have to pay the price.

No one had an idea of how well the new secretary would be able to perform on the job. On the bright side, at least no one would be trying to form a relationship with her, because after seeing what happened to the last secretary, no one would be that foolish. At our office, things can be quite hectic, especially around certain times of the year when there is a lot of work. Sometimes we’ve had to stay after hours to complete the work. We were given extra pay for this, but it was still a lot of work to do.

Even though we had a huge work load to deal with, the secretary did well. This wasn’t our busiest period, but given how things turned out, I think the new secretary will be able to hold her own during the days when we have to stay late. Those days are so draining, and I have to bring some extra coffee in to work to keep me awake. The stuff that they have at the office coffee pot just isn’t strong enough for me. I need something with a little more kick to it.
