The dreaded Admin!

Administration, for some lubricates, for others it irritates. Love it or loath it organisations would be in trouble without it.

'The dreaded Admin!'

Alternately instilling fear and contempt.

Rarely viewed as benevolent.


The occasional glimmer of humanity


A request for support

Garners a favorable response.

Laura, 2019
