Ever been 'very satisfied'?

Herbert had worked for a well-known accountancy firm for some years, but had now obtained a position with another firm. He asked the firm he was leaving for a reference with the phrase 'very satisfied' in it. The firm supplied a reference that stated that Herbert had worked for the firm for X years, and that they were very satisfied that he was now leaving and had found another position.

(Thanks to John Newth for passing this one to me)
