He was never going to send them a warning. Because he liked them. Because he thought they were nice and smart and funny. Really funny--sometimes they made him laugh out loud at his desk. He liked how they teased each other and looked out for each other. He wished that he had a friend at work he could talk to like that.
Jennifer and Beth work for the local newspaper. They know that their company monitors their office email, but they’re still sending emails to each other. Sometimes, the emails are too personal and inappropriate, which is why it got flagged and sent to the IT department’s files for review.
The one and only people at IT department, Lincoln, is the guy who sort the flagged email and decides whether it really inappropriate or not. If it really are, then he would send a warning to them. But Lincoln couldn’t turn Beth and Jennifer in for misusing company email. The first time he read their email, he finds himself so caught up in their story and lives. So he didn’t send them a warning. And didn’t the second time, or the third time. Or any time their emails gets flagged (which is, lots of time).
