Welcome! My desk can be called the NICETIES PORT,
I know who comes and goes; I have ENTIRE OPTICS.

I often serve another role, not as a TIE INSPECTOR,
But as one who writes memos and NOTICES TRIPE.

My notes are complete, not just TOPIC ENTRIES,
I'm often asked for details and to RECITE POINTS.

Photocopier problems? I can help with TINT, RECOPIES,
I track expenses, I am who you bring RECEIPTS IN TO.

Who am I?





What Next?

That is really good! I loved it! I didn't know you could think of so many clever anagrams for 'receptionist'. That was great.

An extremely clever anagram of Receptionist! Quite easy to me though, as I am a cryptic crossword fan. The verse is excellent. Very good work.

Although very easy ( your descriptions were over the top), that is the wildest list of anagrams I've seen. Great Job!

I have caught it as I have been a receptionist for a lot of time (with secretarial functions as you say!).
Well conceived, you work great with anagrams, I look forward to your next teaser! Thanks for submitting!!

Very Nice! A lotta work went into that. I didn't get the answer tho hoping 1 day a flash of something will clue me into anagrams.

THANKS

Who-wooda-thot you could get so many anagrams out of a single word? This is the best combo-teaser (riddle-anagram) I've seen! And, for me, the amazing thing is that I solved it ... I am notoriously poor at riddles.

Okay again will somebody please explain what makes this such a great teaser? I am truly in the dark here. I see some of the words are enlarged. Does that have something to do with it? Because of my age I often miss out on the new things that were not around when I was young. Thanks to anyone, and I will try to remember to come back and take a look

Good morning Babe, all the capital lettered words/phrases are anagrams of the word "receptionist".

Great puzzle. Extremely clever. Wonderful job with the anagrams, Marc! Thanks, Jaycr for your nice explanation to Babe!
