Last week, I was hired at the law firm of Drones 'R Us, the firm that Nu, Nu, & Nu, LLP merged with last year. I like it here well enough but I know that my days are numbered. Employees like me only last a week or so, but that is to be expected--I am brought in to do a very specific job and once my contract expires, I am literally removed from the office with a quickness.
One of the things I have gotten used to is the twice- or thrice-daily visits I get from you and another permanent employee named L. Woods. I heard from my predecessors that you two ladies also visited often while they worked there. But, lately, I haven't heard or seen L. Woods at all. She hasn't called or emailed or sent any form of a message to me (I am always at my desk). Do you know what happened? Was it something I said?
Dear The Temp,
No, it wasn't anything you said. L. Woods is just out of the office taking and defending a couple of depositions. She'll be back next week, but your contract expires tomorrow. I'll let her know that you said hello and goodbye, though. See you in a few...
