There may be times when you hate technology - it seems like it is always breaking down or it doesn't work the way you think it should. Or maybe you just hate learning new technology because it can be very intimidating. Whatever you think of technology there are definitely times when it can drive you crazy. But it can also make your job a lot easier.
As administrative assistants it seems that people are always needing things from us and they never need it in a reasonable time frame. They always need it right now - or sooner if possible. It can seem like it would be impossible to get things done but thanks to technology there is often a way to get things done faster than we'd imagine.
