All these food are only served to her master but never her staff. As a VPA she is supposed to do strategic planning, resource allocation and see how to streamline processes. Instead, all these are put at the lowest priority or not even done but when comes to apple polishing to please the bosses, everything can be thrown aside.
Sounds like a great job

Don't you know that civil servants all want to be highly paid but demand work life balance?
