Karla,

Thank you for calling this to my attention. I will make sure Rachel sees a substance abuse counselor immediately. I know how serious substance abuse can be. I lost my Uncle Len to a cocaine overdose in 1986. He was a phenomenal basketball player. Everyone thought he was indestructible because he was 6'8 and 220 lbs, but sadly, that wasn't the case. He had such a bright future and he threw it all away because of drugs.

Thank you,

Dave Trojanowski

Dave,

I was not referring to an actual counselor. I meant counsel as in advise or meet with her. She called out again this morning. Please get in touch with her as soon as possible.

P.S. Was Len Bias your uncle?

Thanks,

Karla

Karla,

I do not know who that is.

My Uncle Len was a tremendous athlete and he was also a plummer here in Maryland. He quickly made a name for himself in the plumming game while he was in college at the University of Maryland. Soon after he started plumbing full time, the big leagues came calling. He was offered a large amount of money to join a very prestigious plumming firm in Boston - The Boston Septics. However, 2 days after signing the deal to join the Septics, Uncle Len was out celebrating with some plumming buddies when he overdosed on cocaine. All of his hopes and dreams of fixing toilets for the Septics got flushed right down the toilet that night.

I just left Rachel a voicemail. Maybe we should think about trying an alcohol abuse counselor? Alcohol abuse can cause people to miss work due to sickness or being hung over. I know how serious it can be. My dad used to play in a band with a guy named Jimi who died because of alcohol. He choked on his own vomit while he was extremely intoxicated. He was only 27. My dad says Jimi was the best guitar player he'd ever seen. He used to do all kinds of crazy things like light his guitar on fire while playing and even play it with his teeth! He had such a bright future and he threw it all away because of alcohol.

Thank you,

Dave,

I do not know why you are telling me this. Like I said before, we do not actually need a counselor. Rachel has returned to work and has been notified about our attendance policy. Please make sure she is aware that she cannot call out of work without prior notice (unless it's an emergency) while she is working on this temporary assignment.

Thanks,

Karla

Karla,

I will make sure Rachel is notified. Are you sure we do not need a counselor for her? Maybe it's not alcohol or illegal drugs, but maybe it's prescription drugs. I know how serious it can be to abuse prescription drugs. My brother had a friend named Heath who died after he overdosed on painkillers. He was such a promising actor. He was so versatile. He played everything from comic book villains to gay cowboys. He had such a bright future and he threw it all away because of prescription drugs.

Thank you,

I don't know how I can be any more clear on this. I did not mean she needed to see a counselor. I should have never used the word counsel in my original email. Was your brother actually friends with Heath Ledger or are you just messing with me?

Thanks,

Karla

You have to be kidding right? I just sent your emails to my co-workers and they think you are just pulling my chain. You clearly described Len Bias, Jimi Hendrix, and Heath Ledger.

Thanks,
