Valentines for Auditors

Valentine’s Day is over and, I don’t know about you, but I received a number of nice thoughts from co-workers, bosses, and my number one fans – the auditees. Following is just a sample of the many cards, letters, and notes I received: 

Roses are red; violets are blue.
If that’s in the report I’ll come looking for you.
The day has broken bright and clear.
It’s Valentine’s I hear!
The time when people show they care
With thoughts of love and cheer.
I hope this day goes well before
The chaos that ensues,
Because we will have the results
Of your QA review.
Roses are red; violets are blue.
What drives us to Marketing? Bosses like you.
I may just be a CAE,
But I see all you do.
The way you work so extra hard
When those reports are due.
The background, scope, and summary,
And purpose your defining.
Now all I ask is, maybe once,
Could you have a finding?
Roses are red; violets are blue.
Your last report is past overdue.
To find the perfect card for you
I searched both near and far,
One saying that if I were you
I wouldn’t start my car.
Roses are red; violets are blue.
I will pay you back during our peer reviews.
I want to thank you oh so much
For your investigation,
‘Cause thanks to your ineptitude
I’ve paid for my vacation.

So, anyone else out there get something nice?
