How to negotiate backing




HTC, svp!
1) 

To      Gloria (HR)
From Comrade Carl Marks (R&D)
CC: Stan (CEO); Ed (Chairman)

Gloria,

Please replace my I phone 5 with an HTC today.
I suggest that the entire organization "migrates" to  HTC.
BTW, I see no reason why HR controls telephony.
And as I have said before, I do not understand the value proposition of HR.
Comrade Carl

Comrade Carl,

Your request for an HTC is approved. (Gloria, Comrade Carl is a senior manager)Glo, please get me an HTC also. 
I've had it with my I phone 5. Let's see this happen by noon.

PS Get an HTC for Wifey as well.

  1. Do Carl and Stan ever talk face to face? If not, does the medical insurance plan cover thumb damage, or lasik surgery?

    1. Dear Mr Paul,
      Is there a need for to face? Canadians are so conservative!
      Our medical insurance is cost effective and sustainable.
