Email from Jason Hines, Human Resources <firstname.lastname@example.org> Mar 23 - 10:52 PM Subject: A Note from Our CEO Dear Fellow Tigers: TigerZoom has adapted far better than imagined to the economic pressures beginning to surface from this global pandemic. We’re delivering at high efficiency and customer satisfaction rates remain high. As a technology-first company, it should be of no surprise to anyone that TigerZoom functions brilliantly in the cloud. Many corporations have retracted their original financial projections due to the profound uncertainty in current consumer and business demand for products, goods, and services. Thanks to your efforts, we are weathering the storm with numbers well above projections. TigerZoom is on track for a highly profitable Q3! This said, the global outlook remains difficult to forecast. To ensure TigerZoom remains competitive, effective this week all Tigers will experience a 10% salary reduction. We will also begin implementing mandatory overtime for marketing and sales personnel.

Email to Milton Stults Mar 26 - 1:48 PM Subject: Re: Fwd: Re: re: WE NEED TO GET YOU OUT OF THERE! Thanks, Milt. That is so sweet. To be honest, what we need up here most right now is food. I managed to make it to the bodega yesterday (that’s like our little corner store) and the guy there said the vendors they get their food from still have supplies, but the delivery people are refusing to drive into the city because they’re afraid they’ll get corona. Mother offered to overnight me something with dry ice, but I’ll be honest. The UPS people aren’t running either and the mail routes are even crumbling. Route carriers aren’t showing for work, their substitutes are no showing -- service is sporadic and not everything's making it. Last week, we had delivery Mon-Wed from our regular lady, then a sub came Thrs, then there was no mail Fri, Sat, or this Mon. They did come yesterday, but have not yet come today (and yes, the mail normally would have been here by now). Anything you send would be delayed, lost, or stolen. But I sure do appreciate your asking.

You retweeted WKDZ Radio @WKDZ July 21 Ky Gov. announces 613 new coronavirus cases, 2 deaths today, single highest increase since March
April Mitchell replied to your Tweet July 21 - 5:15 PM @KentuckianinNY I see #MSM intentionally left out the fact that hes closing restaurants down #MakeKentuckyGreatAgain #letuswork
You replied to April Mitchell’s Tweet July 21 - 5:17 PM @TheRealAprilM Seating at 25% capacity INDOORS isn’t exactly what I’d call “closed down.” We STILL aren’t allowed to eat inside here at all. Plus y’all can always go to restaurants and sit outside.
April Mitchell replied to your Tweet July 21 - 5:18 PM @KentuckianinNY tell that to the waitress who just lost her job!! #impeachkygov #reopenky
You replied to April Mitchell’s Tweet July 21 - 5:18 PM @TheRealAprilM Better unemployed than dead.
April Mitchell replied to your Tweet July 21 - 5:19 PM @KentuckianinNY and how many people will die of starvation cause they can’t work during lockdown?1!
You replied to April Mitchell’s Tweet July 21 - 5:19 PM @TheRealAprilM Remember you’re talking to someone who lives in NY. You don’t even know what a lockdown is. Ky is nowhere near that. All Kentuckians have ever been asked to do is #wearamask, stay 6 ft apart & get your chicken wings to go. That is not a lockdown.
April Mitchell replied to your Tweet July 21 - 5:20 PM @KentuckianinNY NOT TRUE you don’t even live here anymore. Spas n schools are closed. You have no idea how hard our lockdown has been. It’s not like you lost YOUR job! Quit acting like your special!!!! #reopenkynow
April Mitchell retweeted Breitbart News @BreitbartNews July 21 Coronavirus far less deadly than claimed, Dems intentionally manipulating data
You replied to April Mitchell’s Tweet July 21 - 5:21 PM @TheRealAprilM My friend is dead. Helicopters flew dead bodies over my apt EVERY DAY. We were told not to open our WINDOWS up here. This is not a conspiracy. #wearadamnmask #covIDIOT

You replied to April Mitchell’s Tweet July 21 - 5:22 PM @TheRealAprilM Despite your many ill-informed & poorly worded memes, corona is no laughing matter. Yeah, I live in NY now, but all that means is I know what I’m talking about. I’ve seen what this can do. You all need to stop being such #covidiots #stayathome #stopthespread #wearamask
@TheRealAprilM blocked you
