Encrypted Appraisal letter.....
Dear Manager (HR),
Dave, my assistant programmer, can always be found
Hard at work in his cubicle. Dave works independently, without
Wasting company time talking to colleagues. Dave never
Thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
Finishes given assignments on time. Often Dave takes extended
Measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
Breaks. Dave is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
Vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
Knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Dave can be
Classed as a high-calibre employee, the type which cannot be
Dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Dave be
Promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
Sent away as soon as possible.

The next hour the Project Leader sent this note to the HR Manager:-
"That stupid idiot was reading over my shoulder when I wrote the report sent to you earlier today.
Kindly read only the odd lines (1, 3, 5, 7, 9,11, 13) for my true assessment of him."
