Secretarial: The temp - Beware: Dirty Boss at work

FORTUNATELY, ONE doesn't come across that many sex-pest bosses these days, even as a temp, but when you do, it doesn't help that you belong to the itinerant workforce.

So putting him in charge of someone who has no track record with the company and no employment rights is like putting a bull in a pen with a toddler dressed in a red romper suit. I've heard tales from other temps about the gropes behind the filing cabinet, the wandering eyes, the petty threats, but this is, amazingly, the first time I've encountered it in the flesh.

The novel thing about Canada

I SOMETIMES think Canadians are unduly sensitive to the fact that nobody beyond their country's shores seems to pay them a great deal of attention. "Why do newspapers never write about Canada?" a letter-writer to the Guardian wrote recently. "Is it because we're so boring?"
