The story about George was first published in England and then in the United States before someone began to check the facts. After trying to track down the source without success, the story was retracted as an urban legend a hoax.

What is more significant is not that it was a hoax, but that so many in the corporate world so readily believed it! This flagrant story appeared to resonate with readers as they poured out their stories of how insulated and out of touch their bosses really were.

51-year-old Rebecca Wells was found by a security guard on Saturday afternoon. She was slumped over on her desk in the L.A. County Department of Internal Services.
