Subject: Power Outage

Just wanted to shoot out a quick e-mail. As you’re probably aware, the building suffered a major power surge twenty minutes ago. Backup generators were implemented, and power should be restored to the whole firm now. Please e-mail facilities with any questions. Thank you.

IT informs me that although power is back up, many of our network programs are still down. They are working to restore normal operations. I’ve received some e-mail asking me if the surge had anything to do with the giant alien creature that’s currently terrorizing the city. Yes, I believe it did.

Subject: Re: Power Outage

In response to numerous e-mails, I have no idea what planet the giant alien creature is from. Judging from its enormous gills, I’d have to guess it’s from a watery planet. But would a monster from a water-based planet also be able to shoot fire from its mouth? I’m not sure. Reminder: please let me know if you plan to be in the office on Memorial Day so I can request HVAC for your floor.

Subject: Spam Filter

As a result of the ongoing disaster, Outlook’s spam filter is not working properly. We are also experiencing a high volume of Internet usage, and it is slowing down our system. Please refrain from accessing streaming video footage of the large monster that is attacking the city. If you want to see the monster, the best way is to simply look out the window, as it’s currently demolishing the Cold Stone Creamery across the street.

Subject: Beware of False Rumors

Some of you may have heard rumors that the alien monster has been shooting off smaller, more agile monsters, which are now scaling our building and entering through the cracked windows on the 14th floor. Those rumors are false. The monster is not shooting off smaller monsters. This is pure paranoia. However, the problem with Outlook’s spam filter is real. We should all treat this seriously and report any suspicious e-mails to IT.

Subject: Dress Code

Casual day is not until this Friday. We have received numerous reports of employees running through the halls shirtless and bleeding. If a client is visiting, this can be seen as unprofessional. Any questions about dress code should be directed to HR.

Correction: smaller monsters are indeed branching off of the large creature and infesting our building. Please avoid the cafeteria, as the monsters are currently destroying the vending machines and spraying acid on the new carpeting near the elevators. The cleaning crew has been called to the scene.

Unfortunately, the meeting with Mr. Marget on the 20th floor has been canceled due to him being captured by the small monsters that have infested the firm. Also because the 20th floor is completely engulfed in flames.

Subject: Catering Tip

Todd from catering sends word that the monsters are allergic to caffeine. A group of secretaries found one of the creatures shriveled up and covered in what they believed to be Pepsi residue. The catering staff quickly created Pepsi cocktails and coffee bombs to beat back the creature onslaught. Power is restored to nearly every floor with the exception of the 20th floor, which no longer exists, and the 18th southwest corner where there is still an enormous hole.

A group of the smaller monsters are approaching my cubicle. I’ve found a half-drunken can of Fresca in a wastebasket. Anyone know if Fresca has caffeine? Also, in the future please be sure to separate recyclable material, like cans and bottles, from the general trash.

Fresca does not contain caffeine. If anyone knows how to apply a proper tourniquet please come to the janitor’s closet on the 17th floor as soon as possible. I have a letter from the State of New York Insurance Department addressed to the Municipal & Infrastructure Assurance Corporation. Please advise if this belongs to you.
