           Re: Termination

                 My business is producing life.
                 The bottom line is
                 you are not cost effective workers.
                 Over the millennia, I have repeatedly
                 clarified my management goals and objectives.
                 Your failure to comply is well documented.

                 It stems from your inability to be a team player:
                 * you interact badly with co-workers
                 * contaminate the workplace
                 * sabotaged the machinery
                 * hold up production
                 * consume profits
                 In short, you are a disloyal species.

                 Within the last decade
                 I have given you three warnings:
                 * made the workplace too hot for you
                 * shaken up your home office
                 * utilized plague to cut back personnel
                 Your failure to take appropriate action
                 has locked these warnings into the Phase-Out
                 mode,  which will result in termination 

                             No Appeal.
