This is word-for-word, except for [redacted] elements.

Hey have you watched the [group creation] meeting? Please do so below ..and then make sure to tell me what functions you are interested in. I am off next week – so you need to get to me before tomorrow – or e-mail me next week. Before you sign up – you must watch the link below. This is a requirement of your job.

  • Don’t have computers with Windows Media Player (or, really, any media player).

  • Won’t do the jobs they sign up for.
  • Will complain about the wording of this message.
  • Will be given a 100% pass on not watching the video (which can’t be proven anyway) and not signing up for these functions.
