Owlie is coming to visit and I got her an air matress from Winners. This is what adults do. Adults go to the store on a Wednesday or a Monday and buy produce. Adults invite their friend to sleep over but only if there is proper bedding. I haven’t seen Owlie since 2012 and I’m afraid she’ll ask me all the same questions. Where am I working? Did I ever find a family doctor? Do I still sleep with a bible underneath my pillow? A lot can change in six years. People can grow or stop gowing or get a promotion or lose their job. You won’t find any air mattresses in an unemployed adult’s home. Nobody would see one and expect their host to not be able to afford a nice one like this from Winners. Owlie has always been successful at anything she tries. She got a serving job once just by walking into a place and telling the owner she could see herself working there.

Dear Ms. Dunkirk,

I regret to inform you that we will be shortening your contract, originally extended until January 2019. There is a conflict of interest that has arisen and unfortunately we have no choice but to excuse you immediately. We do, however, expect you to train your incoming replacement as well as leave all of the materials that you developed while here.

If you need further clarification as to our policies regarding employee fraternization, please speak to Glenn in HR.

Thank you for your understanding and all the best.
