I have a teacher's aide. Does that count?

..although I do share secretaries with the business owner I work with. We're like friends, practically.

I had a great one for 6 years that was downright amazing managing me!

Tempting as this sounds, I've heard it's illegal to own people.

I've never had the kind of job where an administrative assistant would be much use. I have had and been an assistant on position, handling computer and paperwork entries and landline calls, but that's more like being a copilot than a secretary.

Yes and realistically she is the glue in our office. Very professional I couldn't do what I do without her. I get her coffee, yep she's that important here!

Yes. I had one before I became a stay at home dad. Some days I wish I still had one. It's very easy to get used to not having to file my own paperwork or get my own lunch.

Does a co-pilot count?

No but my boss has one and we are a few people allowed to ask her for assistance. It's great to have someone to ask for help arranging meetings etc. It's such an overlooked and undervalued function.

I'm waiting for pictures of my niece born an hour ago, so I'm wearing out all my apps. Really hoping I get one before work, her description sounds like my youngest :)
