an administrative assistant

is essential. I am on several important missions today. I have been forwarded 15 PDF files. They must be printed and filed in a folder. I also must track down a certain brand of nylon fiber point porous pen that is not available at Staples and order "10 to 15 boxes". Because the pens at Staples, which are all but exactly the same, are not the same. When that is completed, I must nail down an exact time for a conference call between the porous pen analyst and the CEO and CFO of a company. This company is on the West Coast, so phones have been open for say...7 minutes. None the less, the porous pen analyst has emailed me 2 reminders to follow up today.
