Asking for a raise – From today’s Kitely session

One day an employee sent a letter to his boss asking for a pay rise:-

Dear $ir,

In thi$ life, we all need $ome thing mo$t de$perately. I think you $hould under$tand the need$ of u$ worker$ who have given $o much $upport, $weat and $ervice to your company.

I am $ure you will gue$$ what I mean and re$pond $oon.

Your$ $incerely,

Norman $mith.

The next day, he received this reply:

Dear NOrman,

I kNOw you have been working very hard. NOwadays, you must have NOticed that our company is NOt doing NOticeably well, NOthing much has changed.  NOw the newspapers are saying the world`s leading ecoNOmists are NOt sure whether we will go into aNOther recession or NOt.  After NOvember things may turn NOticeably bad. I have NOthing more to add.

NOw I’m sure you kNOw what I mean.

Yours truly,

The Manager
