‣ Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found
‣ hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without
‣ wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never
‣ thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
‣ finishes given assignments on time. Often, Bob takes extended
‣ measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
‣ breaks. Bob is an individual who has absolutely no
‣ vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
‣ knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be
‣ classified as a high-caliber employee, the type that cannot be
‣ dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be
‣ promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
‣ executed as soon as possible.

Shortly thereafter, the HR department received the following memo
from the Project Leader:

Sorry, but that idiot was reading over my shoulder while I wrote
the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly read only the odd
numbered lines for my assessment.
