There is one key reference that explains his entire diatribe, "Not just when I come in late once every two years and get dinged for it." The guy clearly got busted for something he did wrong. Rather than acknowledging his mistake, he goes on a rampage to expose every "wrong" and "loser" in today's workplace.
And that's why this is the perfect e-mail to sum up everything that is wrong with work. Rather than taking a slice of humble pie about a mistake, he goes on the attack. So throw stones until your heart's content -- just remember by doing so, you blow the opportunity to begin the journey toward a better workplace.
"Never promise more than you can deliver." -- Pubilius Syrus, first century B.C.
