Letter to Parents and Guardians about School Incident

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is concerning the shootout that occurred last Tuesday afternoon in the school grounds of Saint Mary's. At this time, we still don't know all the details of what happened or what triggered the incident. The assailant is not a student or a known individual from the school. We appreciate the efforts of the local police and we will assist them in any way possible in this matter.

New security guidelines shall be enforced for the safety of our students. A security guard will be on duty to inspect the belongings of those coming into the school premises. We have installed additional security cams and metal detectors at the gates. All student lockers are now subject to inspection. Please inform your children of these guidelines. It is for their safety that they cooperate.

Regular Classes will resume on Monday.

Thank you very much.

Not a Skank Letter: Addressing Workplace Gossip Perpetuated by the Boss

Dear Boss,

I am not a skank. That's all water cooler gossip.
I'm just terribly sleepy from all the work you've been piling up.
You're such a bore. No wonder your wife left you.

I quit.

Request Letter for Salary Increase along with Job Transfer

Dear Sir:

This is regarding my transfer notice to the Accounting Bureau at South District. As I am taking in more responsibilities at this new location, I would like to ask for a salary increment along with my final approval of transfer.

As you are well aware that my current salary is $1,350 as a supervisor at the Main Office. Now as I am a District Supervisor for Claims, I feel it is appropriate that I also be considered for a wage increase. Without a salary increment, it would be difficult for me to sustain the increase in living and travel expenses with my daily commute to South District.

Thank you for considering me as a supervisor for one of your important business centers. I am very grateful for this promotional opportunity. As per email, you have often stated in your quarterly reviews that you are satisfied with my work, so I am confident that you will sincerely consider my request as soon as possible.

I look forward to your positive response.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. S

Appeal Letter: Stay or Cancel of Execution

Your Excellency,

We urge you to immediately cancel the execution of Zohreh and Azar Kabiri, two sisters from Khademabad, Iran who have been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, in the name of Islam. We are concerned that such an unacceptable and inhumane punishment is being applied to women who have already had the sentence of 99 lashes imposed and executed and have been denied a fair and transparent trial.

We are gravely concerned that Zohreh and Azar have been sentenced to death for adultery. In Iran, women are punished more harshly than men for having committed adultery; this however directly contravenes article 26 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which provides that “[a]ll persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law.” In a speech delivered on 21 June, 2006 President Ahmadinejad stated that “the country should be built upon the basis of justice, kindness, serving the people, progress and lofty goals.” If Zohreh and Azar are executed, although punishment has already been carried out, then justice will certainly not have been served.

Furthermore, as a state party to the ICCPR, Iran has made an explicit and unreserved commitment under article 6(2) that if the death sentence is imposed it is to be “only for the most serious crimes.” The UN Human Rights Committee (in the case of Toonen v Australia) has made it clear that treating adultery and fornication as criminal offences does not comply with international human rights standards. Therefore the sentence of execution by stoning imposed on Zohreh and Azar Kabari breaches Iran’s commitments under the ICCPR.

We request that you stop the planned executions and take immediate action to remove death by stoning from the legal system.

Yours sincerely,

A Daughter's Scary Letter to her Mom

A funny Letter, I found in my inbox:

A mother passing by her daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, "Mom." With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:

Dear Mom:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new boyfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you. I've been finding real passion with Ahmed and he is so nice-even with all his piercings, tattoos, beard, and his motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion Mom, I'm pregnant and Ahmed said that we will be very happy. He already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. He wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too.

Ahmed taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us and trading it with his friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Ahmed can get better; he sure deserves it!! Don't worry Mom, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grand children.

Your daughter, Judith

PS: Mom, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk center drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home.

A Letter for Mom

Dear Mom,

Now that I've outgrown giving you cards on special holidays. I want to take you out some place special.

I remember when I was seven, you picked me up from school and I showed you how bad my grades were. I remember you being furious at me, but still you managed to take me out for ice cream. We spent half the day at the marina feeding these gulls, you talked me into doing better at school then. Well, I did eventually. And the small successes I've made on my own, I owe it all to YOU - my loving mom.

Mom, I want to celebrate today like that special day years ago in the marina. Just you and me. I'm taking you out for a seafood brunch, I know how you love the deep-fried shrimps and oysters there. And no, I am not taking dad with us. He understands this occasion is just for you. And yes, you can give me a real long sermon, I probably need one by now. I feel I've given so little back to you.

Thank you for giving me and my sister so much in life. For always being there and worrying over the smallest things that we might do or might not do. But one thing, you've always taught us well is to always do the right thing.

I love you, Mom! I am so lucky to be your son!


Apology Letter: Returning an Item Too Late

Dear Nilda,

To my great embarrassment, I recently discovered this camera among my belongings and discovered it is yours -- not mine. I could have returned it much sooner, but I spent the last few weeks doing field work. My apologies for my tardiness.
