office wife
 n.— «Middle managers are being forced to give up their “office wives” as technology threatens the traditional secretary with extinction. A new breed of “executary” who is more interested in managing budgets than in reminding her boss of his wedding anniversary is taking charge of Britain’s offices.» —“Miss Smith takes down her last letter” by Sarah Baxter Sunday Times (London, England) Sept. 9, 2001.
