Dear Bobbi-Mom,

Good stuff. I watched the video.

My company outsources a lot of work to India.
Their definition of acceptable work conditions differs drastically from ours.

Congrats. I hope it results in some extra press for your work.
Personally, I need to find an easier way to achieve Nirvana.
Your son-in-law,
