A Cunning Plan

Gareth works in Technical Support.

A chap in a company he was supporting technically sent an email asking Technical Support to add a dummy user to the software and to call it Vendor.

Gareth explained that this was not company policy - they don't add dummy users.

A few minutes later the chap had a Brilliant Idea swiftly followed by a Cunning Plan.

He emailed Technical Support again asking them to add a user called Mr V. Endor to the software.

However, using his incredible powers of perception, Gareth saw through this. He is still working on what to write back.

How about "the second word is off" or would that be a bit too direct?;)

Endor was where the Ewoks lived (Star Wars reference) so perhaps Mr V Endor is actually Mr Vader. Darth could be hiding his identity behind the planetory name. Gareth's company wouldn't want to be part of some intergalactic subterfuge.

He could say, "Clever, but still against company policy" and sign it:
