Dear Michael,

Thank you for your swift response. I shall resend my paperwork presently.

Meanwhile, you and your colleagues might want to consider removing internal communication threads before replying to an email originator. Including discriminatory remarks is both insensitive and unprofessional.

application. My details are as follows:

I had my long awaited ed. psych assessment on friday. The one I was pretty much forced to have. It was quite taxing. Mrs ed. psych agreed that yes, I am v smart but I have a distinct problem with information relay skills. In layman’s terms this means she thinks I have ADD and dyslexia. Possibly bad enough for a ritalin prescription.

The dyslexia irks me a little bit but the ADD was no surprise whatsoever. I’ve been telling the world at large I can’t concentrate like other people for the last two years and no one listens to me.

Meanwhile I must have most tests done.
