Perhaps Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce will throw me a bone?

The Perfect Secretary's Wedding Pledge from theperfectsecretary on Vimeo.

A good secretary is always on the hunt for a good bone. For everyone knows that the best nutrients are contained not in meat but yes you've guessed it you clever little crumpet it's in the bone. My secretarial time at Sterling Cooper has left me well a little mal nourished. For those of you who don't know I've been working there for over a year doing training videos for them. Have a look at my first one: I kept hoping that they would recruit me on their main floor but alas it never happened.
So when I heard of the new agency that was starting up I looked straight down my pencil skirt and saw an opening...I sure do hope Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce aren't closed for my secretarial business

Ladies, It's Friday and you know what that means, all the boys in the office will be starting early on their Martini's and Whiskey's. Needless to say you should be there to pour and fetch ice and make sure they are liquored up to their desired amount. But most importantly you have to be there for the after math. Look at what happened to poor Mr. Draper last week when no one was around to look after him. To avoid such "fender benders" I have created a pledge to serve and protect the men at Sterling Cooper.

I've been waiting and waiting for 2 secretarial seasons to be called in by upper management to join the team of secretaries on the main floor. With Joan Holloway retiring and Lois Sadler surely getting fired, I thought that there would be room for me on the floor. But instead in waltzes Gayle King, a woman who can't even type, I heard she got the job because she knows a very influential lady called Oprah Winfrey...

I created a pledge for Gayle to help her in her typing struggles. So Dear Gayle please repeat this pledge daily and you'll have the quick brown fox jumping over the fence to the speed of light

Mr Draper has a busy life and sometimes his wife does not necessarily make it any easier on him. Sometimes the poor man has to deal with his wife's terrible mood swings for 9 months. Thank goodness he did not have to see her hysterical outbursts at the hospital. No man should be privy to the inner dangers of the unstable minds of women.
One must really feel for the poor men, who have to wait around the hospital for hours while the wife is delivering.
It's a good thing Sally's teacher is such a kind woman, I really do feel she will be able to comfort him through his challenging time of having a new born at home.
He deserves an outlet. This pledge will motivate you to help him with his troubles.

If you are wondering why I haven't updated my etiquette tales its because my typewriter was just too upset to type up my etiquette notes after hearing that Don draper lost his father in law. My typewriter was very close to his father in law so its been a difficult week. He's been crying black tears. Its been very messy. But my new pledge will be up soon!

Concerned citizens of the United States of America are outraged over a pledge made by some movie stars for a black gentleman. (I am afraid you are going to have to cut and paste, sometimes as a woman I'm not quite sure how to operate this blogging business and can't seem to embed the link, sincerest apoogies)

I am not quite sure who he is and have a sneaky suspicion it's really Mr. Sterling kidding around with his blackface.

I usually post my pledges Sunday night for the beginning of the work week. But since everyone's a chitter chatter over the above pledge I thought I would put mine up early. It seems that parents are in need of something wholesome and inspirational especially for their young girls who will one day if lucky end up working at a prestigious agency like Sterling Cooper.
This one is dedicated to Roger Sterling, as a wedding present from me to him.

The Sterling Cooper Pledge #3 from theperfectsecretary on Vimeo.

Your boss is getting hitched as are all the secretary's around you. You are feeling sad, lonely and unmotivated. What do you do? Mope around your Corona typewriter, ogling the telephone wire to see if it will carry your weight? Why of course not! You stand up with your chest out and your chin up and you recite this pledge. It will get you motivated in no time! After all you get him for the entire week, she just gets him late nights and weekends. Best of all you don't need to put up with the baloney and by baloney I mean wife.
