Politically Correct Recommendation Letters

reference letter

Political correctness may have dulled wit and humor, but with some ingenuity, you can still combine some wit and sarcasm to “politically correct” statements. The following are some examples of politically correct references:

An employee who’s always absent:

  1. “A person like him is hard to find.”
  2. “It seemed his career was just taking off.”

An incompetent employee:

  1. “I refer him with no qualifications whatsoever.”
  2. “There is nothing you can teach him.”
  3. “All in all, I cannot say enough good things about him or recommend him too highly.”
  4. “Waste no time in making him an offer.”

A dishonest employee: “His true ability was deceiving.”

A slacker:

  1. “He doesn’t care how many hours he must put in.”
  2. “You would be fortunate to get this person to work for you.”
  3. “No one would be better for this position.”

An employee who’s not well-liked: “I am pleased to say that he is a former colleague of mine.”

An employee who’s always drunk: “Every hour to him is a happy hour.”

    I have friends who act in the theater, and what do you say to them when their performances have been awful?

    “You outdid yourself!”
    “Your performance was jawdropping!”
    “You’ve never been better!”
    “People were leaving the theater in tears.”
    “I’m speechless!”
    “Your interpretation of that role was so unique!”
    “You must have worked very hard on that role!”
    “So many words!”
    “All eyes were on you!”
    “There’ll never be a performance of that role like tonight!”
