    from the bottom of the page I looked at the bottoms of the phone number hidden… Google searched it and it turns out the company is Ogilvy.com, public relations. David was the Global Business Director according to linkedin… Funny letter but easy to bypass the censor!

    Yes, this is frickin’ hilarious. It’s also workplace bullying of gargantuan proportions. If all this is true, this guy should have been fired within days

    I wonder how they would have coped with a very senior manager having horseshit put in a very hot part of his office T.V. and a kipper mounted on his car exhaust as well as a (somewhat unpopular) engineer having a bouquet garni bag in his tea, not to mention substitution of spray glue for his deodorant? Not to mention a series of slightly scurrilous cartoons depicting events in the organisation?

    Yes, because of course when you write a disciplinary letter you always leave in the funny details in minute and comically-paced detail. Of course you list the “humourous” names he used, and put the innocuous thermostat complaint in first to ensure the other complaints work as a punchline.

    Do none of you realise this is all just made up for laughs? “Simon” and Dave are a double act. Did you all think David Brent was a real character too? Dave’s blog is just “The Office” online – the odd spider-based wind-up apart.

    People.. sheesh

    The events I mentioned were real and NOT followed up with a disciplinary letter! But everybody knew about them, if not always the name of the perpetrator.

    If this is from Ogilvy and Mather, one of their capabilities is in Viral Marketing…this certainly made me look at their website. A clever trick?

    All of Thorne’s stuff has been contrived since he had to sell books. I don’t believe this letter is real for a second.

    Does it really matter whether it’s real or not ? Does it matter if people believe it’s true ? No, it doesn’t. They can believe what they want. So why are people getting so stressed ? Is it really necessary to analyse the letter, and the order in which it is written, to ‘prove’ it’s not genuine or, Heaven forbid, made up ?!!! Whether it’s true or not, I don’t care, it made me laugh and surely that was the plain and simple aim of it !!
