Just heard a tale from a vendor in the e-learning arena about one of their (now ex)( directors who had asked for compassionate leave because his father had died. Two weeks later the father phoned the company to ask them where his son was as he hadn't heard from him for some time. After getting over the shock of receiving a phone call from a dead man, the company did a little investigation & found out that the son was taking time off to set up a rival business.
