Stan's Apology Letter

Dear Mr.Stroheim,

I wanted to apologize about the mistake I made by opening my mouth when I shouldn't have.It was my mistake by defending the other coworker,but you gotta understand how hard it is for him.I'm not trying to say you were wrong or anything,I'm just saying.But it was immature for both of us to act the way we did.

But ill do anything to have my job back please.Money is very tight right now.I would like to have my jobs back please.I deserve my spot back because I'm a hard worker.Also I've always did what i had to do and followed your orders,have mercy and help me out.

Money is very tight at the moment  and i need to help my family out right now please.My family's depending on me to support our family.My other man in the house is very ill and I'm the only one helping out.Please I beg you to help me with this and give me my job back.

Personal Review

To be honest I loved the book.It was hilarous and intesting,it gave alot of examples of responsiblity.The main character was very funny and perverted,like who hits on there cousins.The ending was the best when stanley gave him the poster.He didnt even want to get out of the room because he had that poster.But anyways that was the best part of the story and it was a good book.
