Shirley, Queen of the Very Important Secretaries

Shirley was the queen of the Very Important Secretaries. Think of her like Regina George. Only with a penchant for Comic Sans.

Shirley was one of those people who had a soft, friendly face… that you just wanted to punch after spending any time working with her. She was forever coming up with brilliant ideas that had nothing to do with working at a law firm. Which is fine – I did too. I just didn’t have the power to make attendance mandatory to each of my brilliant non-work-related ideas.

Me: … for the infection?
Calling in sick is always good fun, especially when the person you’re calling doesn’t have medical qualifications, but thinks they do.
