Memo to the Commissioner
Subject:  Letter of Recommendation

Bob Smith, an assistant programmer, can always be found
hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without
wasting company time talking to colleagues.  Bob never
thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
finishes given assignments on time. Often Bob takes extended
measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping
coffee breaks.  Bob 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 Bob can be
classed as a high-caliber employee, the type which cannot be
dispensed with.  Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be
promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
sent away as soon as possible.

[Crafty Fun_People have smelled a rat by this time, but can you figure
 out what's really going on before reading the follow-up memo below?
(Later that afternoon another memo was sent...)

Memo to the Commissioner
Subject:  Re: Letter of Recommendation

Sorry about that earlier memo, Bob was reading over my shoulder
as I wrote it.  Kindly read every other line (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7...)
for my true assessment of him.
