Stan's Apology Letter

Mr.Stroheim , I am sorry that i back up the other employer. Even if it wasn't none of my business. I am also sorry for kicking dirt on your shoe's. I need this job really bad because i have a family to support.

My whole family depends on the money you give because my father does not get a really big income as you should know. I help pay for the apartments,food and water. So i deeply apologies for my action.
