Email from the boss:
"Dear K, there's going to be a conference on bla bla subject, and they need someone from your level to go there as an observer. I supposed you'd be interested to go? I think it would be useful for you to attend and meet the people there".
*completely not thrilled with the idea of meeting a lot of people thus obviously very hesitant to go, wishing she could reply the email like this*
"Dear Boss, please kindly read Quiet by Susan Cain".
