In a scandal that has deeply affected many work colleagues and clients, Data Analyst Michael Brennan received an unexpected wave of negative attention for only using 'regards' in his e-mail signature and not the more affable 'kind regards', reports revealed earlier.
This casual neglection of e-mail ethicate and human decency has deeply upset many colleagues working in his office block, with some particularly outraged colleagues calling for an official apology or better yet suspension for his wrongful actions. 'I've been working with Michael for over ten years,' said one colleague who wished to remain anonymous. 'And the fact that he doesn't have the decency to wish me 'kind' or 'warm' regards just goes to show how much of a callous and loathsome individual he really is. I can't imagine what our clients are like dealing with this vacuum of emotion masquerading as another human being.'
Added to this outrageous behavior is Mr Brennan's introduction to his e-mails, which just have 'Dear sir/madam' and neglects the 'I hope this e-mail finds you well' phrase administered by every other member of staff at the office.'The tip of the iceberg was when he had to forward me an attachment on Friday afternoon and didn't wish me a nice weekend with an excited smiley face,' added another frustrated co-worker.'I mean how does he even sleep at night?'
