Despite the fact that there are no assistants in my office, their email addresses attract hundreds of pieces of correspondence every day.

Additionally, owing to an unexpected surplus of telephone extensions in my Lisbon office, I've assigned my assistants' their own direct phone lines, to which unwanted telephone solicitations are promptly forwarded with great prejudice.
