The art of giving bad news

This is a mail sent out by the technician in charge of the Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM). I find the grandiose style juxtaposed with the depressing news hilarious!

Greetings:

The Agilent 5500 SPM is down until further notice. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes and I will let you know as soon as I have any information on when it will be back up and running. Have a good day.

Definitely a better communication than my Syadmins mails...which carries only an ominous subject "Save your work" :|
