Do you think it was appropriate to put the sub to do the office work (in the front office)? I noticed that elementary schools secretaries want to keep the subs as long as possible. One time, it was so obvious that they really didn't need me to hang around yet they put me to do the office work at the front office area when I asked whether they needed anything. I asked because I was hoping that I could go home early. I did not at the time even though I felt that they were being petty. Now that I think about it, I should have said "No" and that I'd only do teaching related work. In high schools, if the last period is prep, they usually just let the subs go.
