When I draft a 900-page submission to FDA for approval of changes to a
medical device, I usually draft the cover letter as well. Yes, any
qualified secretary can draft a cover letter, but what's the big deal?
Cover letters aren't beneath me, and neither is note-taking. I get
plenty of respect for the stuff I do that no one else can, and I'm
grateful for it.

And if STC certs someday become de rigeur in the medical device
industry, and I pony up my money to get one, I'll still be happy to take
notes at the meeting.

The "glorified secretary" thing does happen.

In the distant past, I was in an operations group meeting at another
company. The person leading the meeting had to step out. As she left the
meeting, she turned, looked right at me, and said, "Take notes. I don't
want to miss anything."

Was I surprised? Yes. Did I take notes? Yes. She was the boss.
