A man is recovering from surgery when the Surgical Nurse appears and asks him how he is feeling. “I’m okay but I didn’t like the four letter-words the doctor used in surgery,” he answers.

Letter of Recommendation:
1 Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found
2 hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without
3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never
4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
5 finishes given assignments on time. Often, he takes extended
6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
7 breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be
10 classed as a high-calibre employee, the type which cannot be
11 dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be
12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
13 executed as soon as possible.
Addendum: Bob was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd numbered lines.
