Internal corporate email

I'm probably breaking all sorts of corporate confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements by posting this email exchange, but I swear to god this really happened today.

I’ve been calling bike rental shops and circus schools but wanted to find out if anyone here at the Egg knows someone with a unicycle that we could borrow tomorrow. It’s for a marketing project and we’d return it to them at the end of the day tomorrow.

Reply to me only if you know anyone or have any leads…

You could have just asked us first and saved yourself a lot of trouble.

"Hey Patti! Can we borrow your unicycle?"

Just promise me that nobody is going to break any bones on it.


Do I want to know why our marketing department desperately needs a unicycle tomorrow? No, not really. Marketing people are just plain scary.
