Thought for the day

My poor significant other. His place of employment recently hired a new receptionist. Can you imagine being greeted each morning with an email such as this? (names have been changed to protect the innocent, especially poor "Jane")

Subject: Thought for the day

Good morning, everyone! First, of all, I’d like to wish Jane a Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Jane, happy birthday to you! (And yes, for all of you wondering, I was singing it while typing). Jane, I hope your day is extra special.

Well, I don’t have as much to say today. I guess that’s a big relief to some of you who may think I’m long-winded. I’m not saying any names, but I’m sure John can let you know who they are! ; ) Actually, I’ll probably never have nothing to say, but some days I may be more talkative than others.

I just hope this receptionist treats customers in a more professional manner.

Does she have smiley-face balloons at her desk?

He hasn't met her/him (gender unknown to me) but I would imagine the answer would be a resounding YES. Probably a candy bowl too, got to keep up that sugar high.
