Anyone who is appalled by the tone of this email is adorably inexperienced when it comes to receiving emails from the executive leadership down to middle management and below.

Jesus Fuck. This is your takeaway? You’re going out of your way to be useless?
He luckily moved away and I don’t have to see him anymore. But he was a colleague and his office was next to mine and I didn’t want to start anything with him and be branded a bitch (more than I already am since I’m loudly unapologetic about calling out sexism), so I just had to put up with the “friendship” for the… Read more
I have been assaulted by three different men. The first was my uncle when I was 16.

And if he manages to get two sentences out without using the words “losers” or any racial slurs, the press will fall all over themselves to call him presidential in the wake of tragedy.
I vote that we defund protecting this piece of shit embarrassment AT ALL. IMMEDIATELY. Like, why should a coal miner have to pay for Trump’s weekend golfing expedition? Or why should a single mother in Detroit have to pay for Melania to live in her golden high castle? It just isn’t something I can justify anymore.… Read more
