Letter of Recommedation... Not!

Nowadays employers, even in this terrible economy, are skittish about giving poor recommendations to inept workers, thanks to the hordes of slavering attorneys out there, starving for billable hours. Which is the subject of another entry altogether.

One sample out there, similar in structure to the Ode to Berlusconi which I mentioned earlier, is always good for a grin.

Letter of Recommendation



While working with Mr. Xxxxxx, I have always found him
working studiously and sincerely at his table without idling or
gossiping with colleagues in the office. He seldom
wastes his time on useless things. Given a job, he always
finishes the given assignment in time. He is always
deeply engrossed in his official work, and can never be
found chitchatting in the canteen. He has absolutely no
vanity in spite of his high accomplishment and profound
knowledge of his field. I think he can easily be
classed as outstanding, and should on no account be
dispensed with. I strongly feel that Mr. Xxxxxx should be
pushed to accept promotion, and a proposal to administration be
sent away as soon as possible.

A second note following the report:

XXXXXX WAS PRESENT WHEN I WAS WRITING THE REPORT MAILED TO YOU TODAY. KINDLY READ ONLY EVERY OTHER LINE FOR MY TRUE ASSESSMENT OF HIM.

That is good. Of course, only the Ode to Berlusconi cuts off words at the ends of lines to mix and match.

Oldie but goodie.

To respond, there are moves afoot to save money of knee joint replacements by harvesting said joints from gorillas.... apart from the quality of joints fettled by swinging through the jungle (watch out for that TREE!)....

they have found that they can get two ape knees for a penny....
