Subject: Choose The Michael Scott Paper Company
Dear whom it may concern,
Bored? Poor? Lonely? Not if you take up this opportunity to join a company on the verge of the cutting edge of paper! Hi, I’m Michael Gary Scott. I’ve been working in paper for the last fifteen years and with paper since I was eight. As the manager of Dunder Mifflin, Scranton I learned two things: everything about the paper business and that Dunder Mifflin is a suckee company. I’m taking that expertness and creating The Michael Scott Paper Company.
This is your chance to join the ranks of people that have made millions selling paper: Robert Dunder, the Hearst family, those people that make counterfeit money, future me… I cannot promise success, but I will promise you the best effing time of your life!!! Because at the Michael Scott Paper Company we’re not just a company or a family, we’re a family company made up of people that aren’t related.
The choice is clear: choose life. Choose the Michael Scott Paper Company.
