I agree, but as a secretary who hasn't been recognized at all for the last 5 Administrative Professional Days, it kind of stinks. I love my job and I'm grateful for it, but it would be nice to be appreciated at some point. Because I do my job well, they are able to better do their jobs. If I did sloppy, half-rearend work, they would sure be complaining about me, so why not say "thank you" when I'm helping you look good!
