I have the most amazing secretary

  1. 12 My job stinks big time. I work in hospice/HH and I have been worke to death. The paperwork is piling up so bad on my desk that I actually can't work on my desk and had to move to another. I keep forgetting to sign this and that and am just buried.

    Well, she always is very helpful. Today she took it to the next level. While we were in our team Hospice meeting, she cleaned and organized EVERYTHING. She took all the charts i need to fill out my discharges on and filled in whatever just needed to be copied and organized them from what is due first. She made a folder of things for me to sign and through out everything she knew ot be garbage. And she wants me to take credit for it and not tells anyone she did it.

    I can't imagine why someone would go above and beyond like that for me. It may not sound huge, but I was really, really touched!

    Honestly, if it wasn't for a lot of her help, I would be out the door by now.

    Just thought I would share a positive story.

    I really want to do something like that. But we actually have 2 secretaries and I would feel bad giving them to one and not the other! Especially since what she did was on the D.L. I need something incognito

    Take her out for a nice dinner.
    It shows more appreciation because you're spending time with her.

    I'd sneak her a thank you card with a small gift card inside.

    Maybe a sincere thank you, (card? ) and a lunch gift cert or take her to lunch. Dinner seems more intimate. I guess it just depends on how close you both are. Common in my work place is to send out a dept wide email to recognize someone for going above and beyond. Its not lunch but at least you know youre appreciated.

    If she insists so much for a D.L., it must be that the department or certain individuals were starting to 'gossip' or pass not so pleasant comments about you or your work. She took the initiative, and went far and beyond her call of duty, maybe because she knows you are a far better person than the paper trail delay. Your co-worker is a STAR. I would get a vard, and write a heartfelt thankyou note, and perhaps mention that words aren't just good enough, you would really like to do something special whether for her or her family.
    Tell her you won't take NO for an answer, and promise you'll keep it on a D.L. as well.

    Well if you ever get promoted to anything bigger and better make sure you say somthing along the lines of "and I could not have done this with out the help of all the people I work with especially my secretary thank you"
