Now, I apologize that tools was broken, however as you might be conscious, it’s and at all times has been a rule that “Something in my space of the pawtrol automotive is MINE!” Subsequently, I submit that the climate stripping that had come undone and offered me entry to it was nothing greater than an EQUIPMENT FAILURE that would have injured me and have become MINE as quickly because it was accessible.
I might additionally prefer to level out that this incident had nothing to do with my accomplice enjoying nation music, (I like nation music), and it had nothing to do with eager to go dwelling, (I like working). This was me merely doing my greatest to guard my accomplice.
I hereby formally APPEAL this Letter of Counseling and advise Neutering won’t ever happen.
