Corporate Love Letter

Thursday, May 26th, 2005

Received this hilarious forward from Priya!

In today’s world of MBAs and yuppies, sickness the old fashioned love-letter is being replaced by such ‘corporate’ love letters.

Dearest Ms. _____, bronchi

I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in love with you since the 14th of February (Sunday). With reference to the meeting held between us on the 13th of February at 1500 hrs, ambulance I would like to present myself as a prospective lover. Our love affair would be on probation for a period of three months and depending on compatibility would be made permanent. Of course, upon completion of probation, there will be continuous on the job training and performance appraisal schemes leading up from lover to spouse. The expenses incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be shared equally between us. Later, based on your performance, I might take up a larger share of the expenses. However I am broadminded enough to take care of your expense account. I request you to kindly respond within 30 days of receiving this letter, failing which this offer would be cancelled without further notice and I shall be considering someone else.

I would be happy if you could forward this letter to your sister, if you do not wish to take up this offer…

Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours sincerely,
Modern Romeo

Here are some stories I found funny.

A stomatology ,1475866, ed 00.html” target=”blank”>Guardian report on bungling British thieves contained this:

…the recent downfall of London robber Robert Downey, misbirth who held up bookies with a banana which he had wrapped in a transparent plastic bag.

…another suspected burglar was caught after making so much noise on 70-year-old Jean Collop’s cottage roof in Cornwall that she woke up and felled him with a garden gnome.

The other is a snippet from The Hindu in the Newscape section – 5 May 2005:

Sridhar Reddy (26) who swallowed his six-inch toothbrush while brushing half asleep in the morning, underwent surgery in Secunderabad and is now out of danger.

Sounded like absurd plots from a sitcom!
