A corporate carol

This December, we’re looking at the wordy quirks of the festive season with a new advent video every day. Today’s video was guess the corporate carol.

Dear Sir,

Please ensure you achieve your deliverables this quarter by installing a dual-purpose pneumonia prevention fashion utensil below my seasonal decoration device.

I’ve met all of my relevant objectives this year.

So please arrive promptly this PM.

And the answer is...

Santa Baby,

Slip a sable under the tree, for me.

Been an awful good girl, Santa baby.

So hurry down the chimney tonight.

The moral of the carol?

You might think corporate language is what’s expected of you, or the way to make you sound smart – but in comparison to the real tune, it really does sound a bit silly.
