Hi Melissa, 

Just wanted to let you know that I’m available to help at the bake sale fundraiser for Chloe’s class next week. Can’t wait to see what those new portables look like! Also, if you need more cookies, my wife makes a mean snickerdoodle. Go Hawks! 

Thanks,
Bill

Hi Melissa, 

Whoops! Looks like I sent that one from the wrong email address. Haha! One too many beers last night 😉 Please respond and let me know when I should arrive at the school on Wednesday. 

Warmly, 
Bill

Hey Melissa, 

Worried that I haven’t heard from you! I wanted to clear up that email address thing… I only use it for business purposes, just got mixed up in my inbox. Really excited to help raise funds for these shiny new classrooms… would love to hear back ASAP. Speaking of, you and Ted should come over some time for a drink (or seven!) with Betsy and me some time. 

Please email me back as soon as you get this! 
Bill

Dear Melissa, 

Touching base—hope there’s not more confusion about my occupation after that last email. My bosses insisted that I use that email address for my role. Please give me a call when you get a chance. Concerned that you might have gotten the wrong idea about my email/employment/life situation. I know that Melinda and Kathy have both gotten an email telling them what to bring, so it seems like I might be the only parent not on the volunteer list.

Getting increasingly distressed, 
Bill
