I am in receipt of your email informing me that you have received my work request for the AC to be repaired in my office. I am also in receipt of the small desk fan you have left on my desk for the interim time until this weekend when the electricians will arrive to repair said AC units in the office.
I do believe we have been through this drill already in my house, and I believe that my behavior at that time was described as "patient, understanding, and deserving of Sainthood." Yes, I realize that description was given by myself, however, I think we can all agree that it all ended well and nobody was killed (that they can prove). Eventually, you even solved the issue in my residence (by moving me into a residence with both AC AND Asbestos).
Please also be advised that the small desk fan you provided to "cool" my office space in the interim has also stopped working. Further, it should be noted that the concrete office in which I work approximately 10 hours per day, when not air conditioned, gets very hot. Your small desk fan only serves as a reminder of how much I totally hate you right this minute. As an illustration, this afternoon Anna and I left a pizza on the marble counter area before we went to our meeting. Upon our return circa 40 minutes later, we had a nice lunch prepared for everyone.
While I cannot deny that our impromptu pizza oven experiment was a huge crowd pleaser for those who have air conditioning in their offices, when Anna pointed out the jumbo bag of peanut M&Ms had melted through its protective candy coating, the other Embassy officials were no longer amused and there is talk of a coup.
Now I understand that you have plans set aside to fix this issue no later than Sunday, assuming that you have the appropriate materials. Please be advised that I intend to burn the Embassy down no later than Wednesday afternoon if you do not come up with an alternative plan.
I would be willing to accept that you move Paul out of his office and put myself in there. I believe that would be a workable solution for all involved. You should probably get Paul a new desk fan. He is a section head.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in this regard.
