We’re given to understand the below email was sent to the entire staff of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).

We can only hope Steve finds his girl.

UPDATE:

SAVE STEVE!

Word reaches us that Steve has been sacked! If you’d like DIAC to reconsider this harsh decision the best contact I can find is here.

Should DIAC have mercy on Steve?

Further Update: We’re still waiting for a response to our media enquiry to DIAC. But we can show you Steve’s Facebook profile in which he seems cooler than many of you might have thought.

(If either Steve or Olivia would like to talk on-record about their experience please email john@the-riotact.com )

Another Update: A spokesperson for DIAC has been in touch to assure us that no one is going to sack Steve. Also, if you’re so inclined, Facebook now has a Steve Tucker Appreciation Society.

OMG UPDATE: The poll has hit new records for us (and bear in mind our spam excluders stop huge numbers of people from voting) and the terrifying women of maternal.com.au are treating this as the essential reference.

Also the SMH’s Ben Grubb is quoting you buggers.

This whole story is now second for this site to Mount Monaghan, which frankly makes me very sad.

The Email:

Good Morning Everyone,

There is a person that works here at DIAC, who has a housemate by the name of “Olivia”.

This message is for you.

Olivia is tall and olive skinned. She moved to Canberra from Sydney last February to work in the Public Service.

Briefly, I met Olivia on the Saturday night just passed. She left a strong and positive impression on me. Unfortunately, people got in the way after we met and I didn’t get to finish our meeting how I wanted to. This has been bugging me ever since.

If you can kindly let Olivia know that I would like to get in contact with her or alternatively get in touch with myself, I will be very appreciative.

Disclaimer: I understand this is not the most appropriate channel. It is not my intent to misuse this email address.

I have struggled to write and send this message. It has taken all of my willpower to do so.

Life is too short for regret. This phrase I know you all can identify with.

Have an awesome Monday.

Steve Tucker

The real story from Steve Tucker himself. He needs an editor cause brevity is not his strong point, but boy does it explain a lot:

Things went awry when Mr Tucker sent an email that would go viral, after it was posted on Canberra-based website the-riotact.com.

haaaaa

He nearly lost his job and became the laughing stock of Canberra for that! I mean, she’s nice, but she’s not THAT nice

God, after all the drama I was expecting something along the lines of Helen of Troy. 🙂

The Sunday Telegraph are claiming to have found Olivia.

RiotACT gets a mention too (not hyperlinked though… how rude!).

Hi Steve, it’s Olivia here. Sorry I don’t remember you.

Your only hope is if I gave you one of my tickets. I gave out over two hundred on Saturday night so don’t feel too special. have a look in your shirt pocket, that’s where I slip them in if I allow you to get close enough.

No ticket? Sorry, have a good life anyway!

What exactly are these tickets for?

Have you never been to the deli counter in Wollies? Now serving ticket 83

Yeah, but when I go to Woolies and my number is called out, I normally don’t have to stir the porridge!

Poor Steve – I guess he never did end up getting physical with Olivia…..

This Olivia doesn’t have a really obvious fake tan, does she…?

In her own opinion she’s so amazingly wonderful, she has tickets on/for herself. But they are pretty exclusive, she only gave out 200 in one night…

One can only imagine all of Steve’s workmates watching him with bated breath to see if he checks his shirt pocket.

You have got to be kidding. the Channel 10 5pm news headlines had this Olivia email on it – must be a slow news day

Any girl that has tickets on herself is not worth your time, run away Steve, run away….

Really hope this genuine. If it is, looks like you dodged a bullet, Steve.

Pity Genie beat the Postalgeek by 40 minutes or so.

Great minds think alike. Mine’s just running a bit behind time.

Poor Steve has tough competition for the Mully this month. He should have waited until December.

Knowing the girl in the picture personally, I can say:… She was with her very long-time partner at the party that is picture. The picture was taken a long, long time ago.

I know Steve- Olivia could do a lot worse.

And you know Olivia?

What a massive douche.

How does 1+1=5? (They obviously didn’t hit it off when he spoke to her)

Must have an inflated sense of self, or he is a massive stalker type… I feel sorry for this Olivia woman!
