Things have been a bit easier around the office after our boss hired someone for company secretarial services in Singapore. There was a secretary who used to work in the office before this secretary was hired, but she really wasn’t that great at her job. The old secretary had a bit of an attitude, and she would always be behind on her work, which would put everyone else behind. It was odd that she was able to work with us for so long, given how bad things were while she was there.
When the old secretary was fired, everyone let out a sigh of relief. For a brief moment, we were free from her terror and able to think about our work. That brief moment of happiness turned into worry again, because we were worried about the person that would replace her. The thought of someone that was worse at their job than our old secretary was something that we couldn’t shake. Our boss assured us that he would look for the best secretary possible before hiring one. That’s how he found out about the company that supplies secretaries for other companies. He was pleased with the description they gave about their secretaries for hire.
Since the new secretary started, she worked on the mountain of paper that was on the old secretary’s desk until it was all gone. She was good and her typing speeds made all of us jealous. I thought I was the person with the fastest typing speed in the office, but she eclipsed me. She was nice to everyone in the office and on the phone. She would even address everyone as sir or ma’am. We should have hired her much sooner, because our work environment would have been better and there would have been less stress.
