Stan's Apology Letter

Dear Mr. Stroneim,

   I am very sorry for what I did. I know that it was the wrong thing to do. I want to know if you could give me a second chance. I promise you I won't do the same mistake again.

   You should hire me back because you won't find someone better than me. I would always work hard, i've been a hard worker ever since I started working there. I'm always on time to work. I won't find a better job, or I won't find a better boos like you.

   Hopefully you read this letter. I really want to get hired again. I miss you and I also miss working there. I want you to really read this, so you can see that I really mean it and so you can change your mind.
