This conversation really happened via email.Â I know the people involved.Â I saw the email exchange.
I am, however, changing the names and facts a bit to protect the innocent.Â The bolded statement is reprinted in its original form.
Mike to Peg via email (Joan copied): “Just wondering…. when were the packages sent out since they will be needed in New York on Monday?”
Peg to Mike (Joan copied): “Today.”
Joan to Mike (Peg excluded): (sarcastically) “So…. I should expect them…. Um Wednesday?”
Mike to Joan: “Oh come on, you gotta have faith!”
Joan to Mike: “Well, you can’t have faith and your period at the same time.”
