> Dear Jacob G.,
I tried that!!! If you had read the e-mail I sent you, you would have seen that she gave me a toll free number to call. When I called them, they told me to talk to the store. Maybe I should have borrowed her phone and just handed it to her. Let HR fight it out with HR(?).
You people are ridiculous!!!
