Subject: To anyone wishing to succeed at Taima Corporation: Please Read
that some of you first level technicians are having a hard time advancing
past the phone lines.† There is an
easier way to become second level or beyond that you should know about.† Just look at
with her lack of growth within the company, for the past two months
How did she go from barely noticeable to front of the line treatment? All she had to do was swallow her pride and start having sex with a lonely, 30-something, overweight, loser Taima supervisor who lives at home with his mother in Kanata and likely very rarely gets laid due to his homely looks and tired physique.† I'd withhold names but that wouldn't be fair to those involved, it's James Poulin, Quality Coordinator, Supervisor for Road Runner & JHSC Co-Chair (email@example.com ), who became the first subject to get used.
A few good
fuck sessions and bingo, you're in luck. Check this killer message sent right
from his work account through taima email.†
I left all the headers in for you doubters, just check it out for
yourself. Within weeks of the beginning of their relationship,
Now before you all go running out to have sex with senior staff members, please remember this route to self-promotion does have some drawbacks. In some, if not all companies, management-employee sexual relations is generally frowned upon by upper management, so the secret is to make sure only middle management finds out.† It often leads to sexual harassment lawsuits and other legal problem that public companies prefer not to deal with.† Often times both employee and managers actually lose their jobs in the aftermath when their relationship becomes public.
problem with sleeping around is that the supervisor you choose might
misinterpret your sexual offerings for promotions as a sign of true affection
or "love".† This can make things
a little hairy again if it ever comes time to dismiss a staff member or if
you have to start sleeping with others further up the corporate ladder.† Again, unfortunately, in our example James
seems to have fallen quite deeply in love with
much research into this particular case study of Taima adultery, I've come
across an amazing amount of email passed through the Taima mail servers,
which, of course, are not secure, and are likely monitored by upper
management to make sure nothing inappropriate is sent in or out.† Please be aware of this, it is very
important for the secrecy portion of this strategy.† In our
Ta-Ta for now. Please forward this message to anyone you think it might help in their quest for getting a promotion!

LOVE LIFT ME
Somebody told me / Once in a lifetime / Destiny finds you and blows you away /
Spins you in circles / Pulls you in pieces / Bleeds you like Jesus / And goes on its way /
But it's oh so simple sometimes / Just to lay your heart open wide /
If you wanna get to heaven / Then you gotta take the ride
Love lift me / Wherever you are /Convince me / I'm safe in your arms /
Love lift me / Make sense of it all /
Teach me to fly / And don't let me fall
Somebody told me / Love makes you stupid / Makes you go crazy / Makes you go blind /
Comes uninvited / And leaves when it wants to / Calls you at midnight and ties up your line /
But it's oh so sweet when it's right (there's nothin' better) / And you swear you won't but you might (you're gonna try) /
Gotta fumble in the dark if you wanna see the light
And when it's all said and done / It's just the same for everyone /
You're busy making your plans /
Love's like a bird baby / Flying out of your hands
And it's oh so hard to explain (we don't know nothin') / And your heart gets hold of your brain (but still we try) /
Better batten down the hatches baby / Here we go again
Love lift me / Wherever you are / Convince me / I'm safe in your arms /
Love lift me /I'm waiting on you /
'Cause nothing can lift me / The way that you do / Love lift me /
Love lift me / Love lift me (only love can take me higher) / I wanna fly

Well its 10:23pm and I just ate.
Im sitting here, thinking about you and I.† Feeling like I still found something/someone that I have been looking for, for so long.
The energy and chemistry between us is something that I never experienced with anyone else before.† When I am with you, I feel this large amount of comfort, caring, passion and most of all. a sense of un-conditional bonding.
As I sit back with you, I feel that I want to be with you.† As a friend, companion, and a lover.† I know that at this point in time anything more than what we currently have is forbidden until a decision is made on your part.† I respect You and Sean to much to put your relationship into a position that it can break, because of me.
I can tell you that I feel you may be at the end of your relationship, and just like me, I may be helping you by showing you that there is and can be more out there for you. (like you have done for me, and I thank you for your thoughts ..).
As people grow older, we find prospects.† I never thought that we would ever be where we are now.† And more-so, I never thought that you would have fallen for me like you have.
I feel lucky. Very lucky.
I want to share so much of my life with you. Things I do, people I know, and more so the love and commitment I have to offer.† I realize that I made be jumping the gun, but I really do want to get to know you more and more every day.
I can only be responsible and neutral for you.† I want to you to be happy.† If you are happy with Sean, then you should stay together. And I will support you on that. Like I promised you I would.
I won't let you down.
However, if you do wish to peruse a relationship with me.† I would be honored to be by your side, as a friend, companion and lover. I want to be the one. And I want you to be the one.
Lastly, I dont want you to feel guilty. What we have is natural and it is without any intention to hurt anyone.
Well .. its 11:03pm and I'm going to wait for your call.
Waiting for your call sweety.
