Brilliant. I feel this guy`s pain.

This is hilarious!

It reminds me of one time when a supervisor of mine asked me to make a sign in Word that said` "Keep these doors closed"

I printed out his email and blew it up on the copier.

"Are some people so socially inept that they don`t realize they`re being mocked?"

All the time, especially on the internet. Heck, you didnt even consider this was fake.

If this is real, the designer is a douchebag. He could have just said no rather than being a complete non-nice individual.

"There is no way this is real. Any retard can make their own Lost poster with Word"

There is no way this is real. Any retard can make their own Lost poster with Word. She wouldn`t have to depend on some non-nice individual graphic designer to do it for her. Stupid post.

that guy was a dick BUT people, how hard is it to fire up one of many programs, like Word, publisher, photshop, etc and make YOUR OWN POSTER in about 5 minutes?

seriously, if you can`t so something that damn simple you shouldn`t be playing with a comp anyway...

"That says something about gender polarisation, perception of altruism, and enjoyment of sarcasm in modern society. But I can`t be arsed to figure out what it says."

Probably says that females are more compassionate (especially to animals), and males can be dicks I guess?

Blah blah blah, probably due to maternal instinct, blah blah blah.

lol! Seriously, I would have just done it myself instead of bothering someone else who obviously didn`t want to do it. It`s not that hard to paste a picture of your cat on MS Paint, write the text above and under the picture, and print it out.

btw davymid, I thought this was pretty funny.

This is just a dick thing to do to someone asking a simple favour to try to get there cat back.


I`m surprised she didn`t just whip something up in word or some pooty program though. Bit of text, make it large, add picture, done. Print and stick everywhere in town.

@LandoGriffin: STFU, loser.

Generally speaking, I was seriously tempted to text, "So, you find your cat yet?" to the number on the poster, but, eh... I don`t really feel like putting up with the noise that might bring.

David Thorne gets less and less funny the more I see from him. And if he is complaining about having more important work to do, why did he put so much effort into making spoof posters?

Guy not too nice, she asked if he was not too busy could he do it. Could have said he can not as he has too much work to do.

However she could have easily done it herself....

The guy`s a jerk. He`s wasting his time, the company`s time, and the secretary`s time by being a non-nice individual. It`s not funny to mess with someone who just lost their cat. It`s an emotional and distraught situation.

This is funny great fiction but why are people calling him a dick? If you work for a big company these kind of unilateral requests are made all the time. Imagine you`re working the counter at a bakery. Your sister`s in town and it`s her birthday. You ask the baker if he could whip up a small cake for her. He doesn`t know your sister at all. He either gets all sarcastic like above or says, "Yeah, give me 25$ bucks and I`ll do it." You get pissed because he doesn`t stop what he`s doing even though you asked for the favor. What if he did it for you? What favor are you going to do for him?

I laughed at it, but at the same time I kind of wanted to kill that guy-- if this is a real person he`s talking to, I hope karma cuts off one of his limbs. (I know this is the spider guy, but I can`t remember if he makes this up or not)
