Management would like to inform all employees that they will now have to use their magnetic card to unlock the back door of the store. Due to recent thefts, and because of the suspicion that the thieves had a key, we have changed all the locks to magnetic card locks. These cards will need to be changed if you lose them, so we are asking for a deposit of $10 from each employee.

Thomas,
I was really sad to hear you are not coming to the party. I hope it’s not because I invited Abigail. I know you used to date her but I though you guys were okay now. Abigail has been a friend of my girlfriend for years and I had to invite her . . . there will be so many people there, man. You probably won’t even see her! It won’t be the same without you! You have to come, bro!

We regret to inform you that the building will be without water for the next 24 hours. A leak in a pipe on the 3rd floor has caused flooding in two apartments and required plumbing work. Our plumbers assure us that water will be turned back on within the next 24 hours and that things will return to normal. Repairs to the two apartments will be done during the next week.
