OK, we know there's no "perfect job," but I'm wondering how much BS should a personal assistant have to take. Now, keep in mind that a PA is not an administrative assistant working in a corporate office (under the protection of a human resources manager).

A personal assistant, especially one to a celebrity or high net worth family, is going to have to take some abuse. But how much is fair? Should the PA be subjected to humiliation if they are being paid a high salary?(Let's say over $100,000 a year). What do you think?

PLEASE KEEP YOUR COMMENTS FAIR, POLITE AND FREE FROM PROFANITY?

if i am abused by a famous female film celebrity, i will tell her that the only reason why became famous is: she opened her legs very wide in front of the camera. no talent at all.

Unless that's sarcasm and I'm missing it, I think that's kind of cynical how about famous, quality rising stars like Mila Kunis? She's never even done any nude or topless stuff. She worked her way up having started in 'That 70's Show' when she was 15.

i don't care who she or he is. if he or she treats me like a slave, i have to fight back. i experienced this before. i was treated unfairly at my workplace. i fought with my boss. i got fired. i applied for unemployment. i won the case. i gave a good reason why i fought back.

i don't care if i lose my job. i have money. i won't go hungry. besides, i can find a job even if i fought with my boss.
