The Ketchup Email

I just received the ketchup email and I thought this can't be true, but it is. The sucker guy is a senior associate at Baker & McKenzie! Unbelievable!

Anyway, the ketchup email is officially news. Here is the email he sent on 25 May:

Hi Jenny

I went to a dry cleaners at lunch and they said it would cost £4 to remove the ketchup stains. If you cd let me have the cash today, that wd be much appreciated.

Thanks
Richard
And what did Jenny do? Replied to him and carbon copied all her colleagues:

Subject: RE: Ketchup trousers

With reference to the email below, I must apologise for not getting back to you straight away but due to my mother's sudden illness, death and funeral I have had more pressing issues than your £4.

I apologise again for accidentally getting a few splashes of ketchup on your trousers. Obviously your financial need as a senior associate is greater than mine as a mere secretary. Having already spoken to and shown your email and Anne-Marie's note to various partners, lawyers and trainees in ECC&T and IP/IT, they kindly offered to do a collection to raise the £4. I however declined their kind offer but should you feel the urgent need for the £4, it will be on my desk this afternoon.

Jenny
Well done Jenny, he asked for it!

The best comment in the email, which was going around for a while and is full of hilirious comments, was this "this chap should emigrate"! I think he should :)

Hiya, I am really glad I've found this info. Today bloggers publish just about gossip and this is really frustrating. You've got a good site with interesting content. Thanks I will be visiting again. Do you do have a newslettes? Can not find it.
