"Today I wish my son William who lives in Australia and my younger (yet bigger) brother Peter a very happy birthday. While their are many similarities of character between the two such as sharing the same birthday, the most obvious one is that they each carry the Forde gene of 'rebelliousness' deep within them. Both have interests that involve the love of words and a general hatred for being told what to do by their employers. William is a rap singer and song writer in his spare time when he isn't working as an accountant and Peter is a poet when he isn't working as an educational psychologist.
If the truth be widely known, neither enjoy working for anyone or anything that loosely resembles 'an organisation'. Both are free spirits whom display a propensity to p... off their bosses far to often and too easily yet, being wedded to the responsibilities of marriage, pension and mortgage commitment usually prevents them throwing up their job every Monday morning when they report for duty.
Have a good birthday son and brother. Remember to remain positive at all times if you seek happiness and never hold a grudge against another person, as 'holding a grudge is like letting someone live rent free inside your head.' Give your work boss a big wide smile when you next see him. It will drive him mad to see you so happy in the workplace and if you learn to keep your thoughts about him to yourself, your bosses may never know what you truly think about them and their 'oh so organised lives.' Have a nice day. Love you from dad and big brother." William Forde: August 11th, 2014.
