Hey guys, we need to sort out who’s going to bring what to our annual birdwatching club outing to Crimson Falls next week.

Subject: Training session

Dear Mr. Mallory,

I just learned from your memo that I will be required to attend the training session on October 12. Unfortunately, I had already planned to be out of the office that week attending my niece's wedding. My supervisor has given me permission to take that time off, and I have already purchased my plane tickets. I didn't know about the date of the training session when I set up these plans, and it will be very difficult to change them now. My mentor suggested that I ask you for permission to miss this training session. I am willing to attend the next session instead. I hope you don't reject this offer. It is very important to me to be able to attend this family event. Thank you.

MUSICAL RECORDINGS BY: SHAWNA KRALL

Midsummer Day's Dream
Krall's first recorded album from the 1980s is a collection of mostly self-written songs, with some composed by collaborator Ken Lewes. The album sold 3.5 million copies and propelled Krall to fame.

Listen Here
In her second album, Krall collaborated again with Ken Lewes, and two songs they wrote together became number one hits. The album's strong social commentary appealed to many fans.

The Temptation
Many called Krall's third album her best work yet, citing the interesting musical arrangements and intelligent lyrics written by Ken Lewes. Despite receiving the most critical acclaim, the album sold only moderately well and "Bright Days Ahead" was the sole song on it to make the top ten list.

Little Thoughts
After taking a break from the industry, Krall came back with this reflective album. Critical reviews were mixed, but fans appreciated its similarity to some of Krall's early work. The album sold 28 million copies, and all songs were written in collaboration with Ken Lewes.

On The Whole: For her fifth release, Krall has re-recorded ten of her most famous songs with a live orchestra. The album contains two new songs written by Krall and Lewes.

Subject: Problems with the network

Dear Mr. Harlow,

I don't know if you've received other complaints already this morning, but at the moment I'm being denied access to the company's network. I've never experienced something like this before. My co-worker, Jim Stevens, said he was having the same problem. When I enter my employee ID and password, I receive this message: Employee ID invalid. I'm positive that I'm entering the correct ID, so I don't know why I can't access the network. I tried to contact the Computer Technician, but he hasn't replied to my emails. I was hoping that you would be able to help me, since you're the Technology Supervisor. I would really appreciate any assistance you can provide at this time.

Thanks.

Subject: Re: Problems with the network

Hi Gail,

I'm sorry that I did not reply sooner, but one of the computers on the fifth floor unexpectedly shut down and I had to investigate the cause. Our Computer Technician, Thomas Benson, has the flu and will not be in the office for the rest of the week. I have heard from many other employees today, and they all mentioned the same error message. I think the problem might be that we updated our computer security system, but I can't be certain until I do a little more research. I'm not sure why, but we seem to be having a lot of problems with our computers lately. This is the tenth complaint I've received this morning. I have scheduled a meeting with the Administrative Supervisor, Philip Downs, at 3 p.m. He should be able to tell me how to fix the problem. Usually, the kind of error message you describe appears when there is something wrong with the security settings. In the meantime, I recommend that you save all of your current files on a hard disk because there is a possibility that we will have to erase your hard drive. If you have any questions before 5 p.m., you can reach me at ext. #5498.

Clary Closets
18 North Main Street
Chester, VT

Dear Ms. Clary,

I am writing to dispute the charges on the invoice I recently received from your company. The invoice contained several mistakes. First I was told that I would not be charged an initial consultation fee if I decided to use your services. Since I did go ahead and hire you to organize my closets I should not have to pay this fee. Second the final charge for organizing my four closets was $250 higher than the original estimate. I think this is too much and that I should be charged no more than the original estimate. Finally, I was charged for supplies that you ordered without my authorization. I could have obtained these same supplies myself at a lower price. Since I did not authorize this charge I think I should pay a lower price for the supplies.

I chose Clary Closets to organize my closets because several of my friends and business associates have been satisfied customers of yours. However I find it difficult to believe that an organizing business can be so inefficient when it comes to invoices. Please rectify these mistakes and send me a corrected invoice promptly.

Sincerely,

Millicent Pensky

Dear Ms. Morris,

I am writing to inform you that the McGuiness Women's Foundation Luncheon, which was scheduled to take place this Saturday at 3 p.m., has been postponed to Sunday at 2 p.m., due to predictions of showers. Therefore, I would like to change the delivery time for the flower arrangements we ordered. Would you be able to deliver the flowers either Saturday morning, or between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon? Also, if you choose to deliver the flowers on Saturday afternoon, please do not take the flowers to the Club House; we will be hosting a charity lunch for the Rotary Club at that time, and the area will be full of people. Instead, could you please bring the flowers to the Maintenance building next to the botanical gardens? If you can bring the flowers in the morning, just take them directly to the Club House as we originally discussed. Please e-mail me immediately to confirm these changes.
