When in conversation with one of these creatures, insist upon referring to their office/dept as 'Personnel'. They fucking hate it. The 'Diversity' ones are the quickest off the mark and if you're unfortunate to have one who wears comfortable shoes, just watch how they appear to be making mental notes of everything. Fucking Stasi.

I was sent a letter from HR informing me that I'd been unsuccessful in my job application.
I gave them a quick call to confirm that this was really the case as I'd been in position for five years at that point.

I went for a job with British Gas years ago as a commercial credit controller (debt collector, basically) and they were so unexpectedly rude to me in the interview and condescending, I very quietly told them that I wasn't going to sit here and be insulted by a pair of HR reptiles and a meter reader and that they should go and fuck themselves and stick there shit job up their fat obnoxious arses and got up to leave. 'Are you walking out of this interview?' one of them asked. 'Of course I fucking am' and left.
A week later I get a letter
"Dear Mr Mothman,
I am sorry to inform you that you have not been successful in your application for the post of commercial credit controller.
However, your name has been added to a reserve list for any future vacancies which currently are very likely to arise in the near future. There will be no need for further interview if we offer you one of these posts.
Please sign and return the copy of this letter enclosed if you wish to added to our reserve list.
I returned the letter with 'no thanks' written across it.

Had a lovely email from HR a few days ago, welcoming me as a new employee and reminding me of the need to read all the company policies on the intranet etc etc. I've only been there 12 years.

I worked for Aviva Investors for about 9 years. Throughout the entire company, HR are the most notoriously overpaid, useless bunch of fucknuts I've ever had the misfortune to be associated with (and that includes the RMP). I have quite an extensive list of fuck ups which they oversaw.... Not least, hiring me in the first placeBlackadder: A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening tear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I got a letter form NI Civil Service personnel once, inviting me on a training course for the Departmental Central Index (main computer system). I had been in CHARGE of this system in our building for over 2 years at that point.
A similar letter was issued in the name of some poor guy who had died in the office.
re the British Gas thing - wasn't it them who sent a snotty letter addressed to a guy who had been killed in a gas explosion?
