Hey, man, I sent you that chapter 5 times. Did you look in your Junk folder? I'm sending the attachment again.

I did not find any attachment. As usual. I check my Junk folder daily. If you had sent it five times I am sure I would have received it. The manual has been waiting for three weeks now for your chapter on cookie handling. It would be far more honest on your part to admit it isn't ready and request a delay. Are you trying to make me believe your manuscript got lost in cyberspace or something? Humor has its place - as when you claimed to have attended the company Halloween party disguised as an invisible spirit - but there is a limit. Jake, I am arranging for you to have a talk with our Personnel Manager.

If you don't want to share your recipe with me, it would be a lot more honest just to say so and not try to make me believe you sent it 6 times. I can easily find another recipe for chocolate chip cookies for my book club, even though yours are the best I ever tasted, and I say that sincerely. Just tell me you want to keep your secret and I will understand. There is no need to tell improbable stories.

I must call your attention to the fact that, once again, several items in my order have been completely disregarded. I refer to three cartons of graham crackers, two of speculoos and one of ginger snaps. These lines appear to have been simply deleted from my order without any rhyme or reason. Until recently, you have always delivered on time and otherwise provided satisfactory service. If your personnel are incapable of processing a complete order, I may, regrettably, be compelled to seek a more reliable supplier.

I beg please excuse.
Is my little sister.
She like all things Cookie.
She steal and eat.
I spank her.
So sorry.
