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.
Jan 23, 2007

Yes, that is probably the best riddle I have seen on this site! Excellent job, Marc

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.
Apr 14, 2008

One of the best I have seen. Very well done.
Apr 14, 2008

I actually got that one really fast. It was fun though.
Apr 14, 2008

Very clever. Got it quickly, but I too am amazed at the many anagrams. Very well done.
Apr 14, 2008

Didn't figure it out. Great teaser
Apr 14, 2008

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

Although the answer was fairly easy,I commend you on the brilliant writings.
Apr 14, 2008

One of the best teasers I've ever seen! Nice job!
Apr 14, 2008

well done!
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!!
Apr 14, 2008

Great riddle, give yourself a gold star for this one.
Apr 14, 2008

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.

Apr 14, 2008

Nice work!
Apr 14, 2008

Excellent riddle; one of the best !!
extremely clever! thanks!
Apr 14, 2008

easy but excellent, loved this one
Apr 14, 2008

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.
Apr 14, 2008

Easy, but so well done!
Apr 14, 2008

This is a SINCERE TIP TO anyone who wants to create as fun a teaser: be as creative as this poster!

Hey .... jaycr ....

I enjoyed your "Blind Man's Bluff" teaser of several years ago but was not able to comment at the time (new member).

Please do some more
Apr 14, 2014

Great puzzle!
Apr 14, 2014

Yes, MarcM ......

TWO Bunnies couldn't be wrong !!!!

Apr 14, 2017

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
Apr 14, 2017

Good morning Babe, all the capital lettered words/phrases are anagrams of the word "receptionist".
Apr 15, 2017

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