hell's coders
"Morgan,

I have just got back from B-57, where I have been sitting waiting for you
to show up since 25 past 9. My patience has now run out. I have been down
to the department to meet you three times in the last 24hrs, and on each
occasion you have failed to show up.

I would like your part of the code in on Friday. This will already be one
week later than everyone else finished theirs. If you have any problems,
you can email me, but I've got stuff to do myself and so I will not be
traipsing round campus to meet up with you.

I must emphasise that if you do not hand in your code by Friday, I will
feel bound to inform Mark Ratcliffe that you have not been pulling your
weight on this one. I worked ten hour days on this project for quite a bit
of the holiday. Somehow, I don't think the same can be said of you.

I hope this is clear. I am not trying to alienate you or force you out of
the group, I just want you to do some work.

Ruth"

Little git.

I never thought I'd been saying this, but - roll on, deadline.

Edit: Further emails.

I don't know what you are talking about, I was there from 9AM on my laptop waiting for you! Did you look around the room to see if I was there!?!?

"Morgan, that won't wash.

I was in the Advisory room from 9.25. At that point, there was only me and the advisory guy in there. Several members of staff came in, and a few students, but not you.

"Ruth

You can ask Advisory themselves BECAUSE I WAS THERE WITH MY LAPTOP!

I was there from 9:00 till 9:50, you just diddn't bother looking around to see if I was there, I was in the far corner with my laptop plugged in opposite the Advisory table, I have had a word with Mark about this,
currently he is telling me to sort the problem out myself!, and where are you, I cannot see you in B-23/4 as you said you were.

Clean up your act, because time is short, next time, look around to see if I was allready there!

From

Morgan Jenkins"

"Morgan.

I'm getting really quite cross. I walked in past advisory and crossed the room to sit on the other side, there was nobody there. If you were there, why didn't you say hello to me when I walked past the table you claim to have been sitting at?
I'm not in B23 because I'm at home doing the work I've been trying to get done since yesterday afternoon. I did say I'm not going wandering round campus after you any more.
If there's something you can ask me via email, then ask it. I've had enough of this.
In any case, I still want that code by Friday.

Ruth"

I am really, really angry. I went for a run to calm down, then I found the email telling me to clean up my act in my inbox when I got back. Clean up my act! Who does the little shit think he is? I'm giving him one last chance to back down.

I'm so angry, I'm nearly crying. I didn't even know that was possible!

I'll sharpen the implements for you, if you like.

I know a couple of great places to hide bodies...

no, no, no... you've got this all wrong.

What we need to do is take the body out to the Animalarium, then feed it to the snakes.

What's more fun is throwing him into the snake pit while he's still alive :>

Or we could cover him in chips and leave him on the beach for the seagulls. The seagulls of Death that is.
