Subject: Request Regarding Missing Laser Pointer NO. 3 from the General Affairs Lending Equipment

Dear July McAtee-Sama,

Today during the first morning check of the lending equipment, it was found that the NO. 3 laser pointer had not been returned. I am emailing you because you reserved it yesterday. (You simultaneously reserved the NO. 3 projector.)

The NO. 3 laser pointer was found stored in the case of projector NO. 4.  We request that when you return lending equipment, you place it in the proper location. I do not understand why it was stored with projector NO. 4 (reserved by someone else), but I thank you for your cooperation in the future.

Dear XX-Sama

Yesterday laser pointer NO. 3 was not in the room, so I didn’t use it.

Best regards,
July

P.S. You might at least have found out the facts before accusing me.

P.P.S. You really remind me of the people working in my daughter’s middle school office in Cupertino.

P.P.P.S. Life is miserable in the General Affairs department, isn’t it? Get out and look up at the sky every once in a while.

      Dear Onini-sama,

      Thanks for the emotional support. 🙂

      At least he wasn’t giving me the white gloves gaijin treatment. It was full-on Japanese treatment for me.

      BR,
      July
