Actual exchange going on in the office right now:
Email 1 (from D to J):
Just to let you and the HCAN staff know that we just received 2 delicious-looking apple pies as a Christmas gift from—don’t laugh—two Citibank reps who dropped by. Please let everyone at HCAN know – D
Email 2 (from J to staff):
Citibank has graced us with pies. It’s a Christmas miracle.
Email 3 (from A to staff):
Thank the taxpayer-financed bailout for funding their largess.
Email 4 (from J to staff):
I was a little confused how two pies cost $10 Million, but I’m not an accountant.
Outburst from down the hall:
I want bailout pie!
p.s. I should clarify that we rent space from another organization. The pies were delivered to them. Citibank is not trying to shmooze HCAN.
