To whom it may concern:

While Mister Jensen would like to have come into work on January 15, 2019, he came down with a severe case of mulligrubs. While his absence may have been temporarily inconvenient, the lack of his presence was better for all concerned in your environment, because once a person with mulligrubs enters a workplace, it rapidly spreads to all persons in the immediate vicinity, from co-workers to customers alike. A customer who has picked up the mulligrubs from an employee has a tendency to spew toxicity wherever they go, and, before long, we’d have an epidemic on our hands.

I have prescribed three days at a local resort for Mister Jensen, so that he can eradicate the mulligrubs from his system. Seventy-two hours of delicious food and drink, walks on the beach, and a daily massage should have a restorative effort on his system and he can return to you in good health.

Sincerely,

Doctor William Henry Owens
