Sun faces leak crisis in the Low Countries

Taking the p*ss out of Belgium

The next step in data security

Pity poor Sun Microsystems - not only is staff morale crushed by huge losses and puzzling fat cat bonuses - news has now reached Vulture Central of a flood of lavatorial mischief at its Belgium tentacle.

Cue an internal email with the subject "Respect for others". Take it away, Sun Belgium and Luxembourg managing director Paul De Decker...

All,

As there are no small children in this building, I never thought I would have to send this kind of mail.

During the last couple of weeks, it seems one of the male employees on the _second floor_ either has a serious illness or a lack of respect for others..., cause he urinates against the wall in the toilettes instead of in the appropriate recipient.

Apart from the nuissance for other people and for people cleaning, I worry about the health of the person involved.

So should anybody see this happening, please do notify us, so that we can take appropriate measures.

Thanks,

Paul

Oh dear. We were unable to contact the "appropriate recipient" to see how he/she feels about the snub. If anyone can...er...finger the perp, or can lend Sun a mop, get in touch. ®
