Hey boss, so sorry to bother you. 

I just had quick question when you have a second. I haven’t gotten a CareerInTouch notification yet, so like, when does the drop period end for this internship?

I just want to know how long I have to keep exploring my options, even though yeah, I know I interned here last summer too. 

It’s just because my cousin Stacey just changed her whole path and became an English intern, so I’m kind of thinking I may want to broaden my horizons too. 

Anyway, it’s alright. It doesn’t matter. What’d you say you wanted again? A grande dark roast with almond milk? One usual coming right up!
