You know...

I don't have to do this often, but when I have to prepare coffee for a whole boardroom, and especially when I have to interrupt their meeting to bring coffee and cups, sugar, etc etc etc to them in the boardroom, and then when I have to clean up and wash all the cups by hand... I feel like a waitress not a secretary.

I don't know why but I have a really really hard time with the fact that I *have* to bring them the coffee in the boardroom on a tray and everything like a waitress. I don't think that waitressing is a crappier job than any other job, I just somehow personally hate being expected to serve people. I think that part of it is because I'm so overly shy and self conscious, that interrupting a meeting and walking in while everyone stares at me in silence is just a really shitty thing that comes with this job.

My contract will be up in 1.5 month, and I should really look at my options before signing on the dotted line again. Blarg.

I know it's easier said then done, but when I started to dread going into work, and would actually want to cry about it, I knew it was time to seek greener pastures.

Hope that you're not at that point yet and you find an amazing job soon!

Whatever happened with that job you were thinking of applying for a couple months ago?
