Morning! Welcome to E-mail Picks. It's
November and as the year draws to close,

0:00:10.380,0:00:15.870
things are getting busier and busier, so
it's not surprising that some employees

0:00:15.870,0:00:21.150
are starting to look really stressed. One
of my colleagues, Steve, looks really

0:00:21.150,0:00:27.000
really stressed. It sometimes seems as if
he's about to jump off the window.

0:00:27.000,0:00:32.099
So, Saril, who is another colleague of mine
- I'm very close with, and we often go out

0:00:32.099,0:00:36.930
for a drink after work. So we were having a drink together the other

0:00:36.930,0:00:42.210
day and we were very worried about Steve.
So we decided to invite him out for a

0:00:42.210,0:00:47.910
drink to see if he's okay. Now, Saril and
I only drink for about one or two hours

0:00:47.910,0:00:51.600
every time. We don't like drinking until
very late at night.

0:00:51.600,0:00:57.000
So in this e-mail I'm going to write,
I'll try to communicate that preference

0:00:57.000,0:01:04.170
of hours to Steve, okay? So here goes:
Hey, Steve. I realize you've been through

0:01:04.170,0:01:08.310
a lot these days and I thought taking a
little break wouldn't hurt. Saril and

0:01:08.310,0:01:11.460
I are going out for a quick drink after
work tomorrow night. Would you care to

0:01:11.460,0:01:16.200
join us? Kyota.
Okay so as you can see, this e-mail

0:01:16.200,0:01:21.630
is really short. The reason I'm asking
Steve out for a drink is because he

0:01:21.630,0:01:26.250
seems very very stressed with a lot of
problems, but I don't want to say that

0:01:26.250,0:01:32.369
too directly, so I wrote: "I realize you've
been through a lot these days." Also I

0:01:32.369,0:01:37.079
didn't want to sound like I'm trying to
help him. He's a tough independent guy so

0:01:37.079,0:01:41.670
I don't want him to think that I'm
feeling pity towards him that's why I

0:01:41.670,0:01:46.710
wrote: "I thought taking a little break
wouldn't hurt" then it doesn't sound like

0:01:46.710,0:01:50.970
we're doing this just for him - it's for
all of us. We all need to take a little

0:01:50.970,0:01:55.710
break. And finally, I wrote: Saril and I
are going out for a quick drink

0:01:55.710,0:02:00.149
so that Steve will understand that this
won't be a major time commitment.

0:02:00.149,0:02:02.960
So there you go, an e-mail to ask a colleague
out for a quick drink.

0:02:02.960,0:02:07.409
So hopefully Steve will say yes and
we'll get a chance to hear his story.

0:02:07.409,0:02:11.520
Alright so that's it for today, thanks
for watching. I'll see you later.
