Mr. Custy,

Between you and I, I once worked as an employee at the
Fields Corner Store 24.  So between you and I, let me state
that  I fault YOU, and those above you, for the poor
quality of store merchandise, for example cigars.  Why?
Your company pays as little as legally possible, and
for those meager wages expects a long list of tasks from

Therefore, there is little incentive, it seems, for employees
to do much of anything, let alone keep up the cigar

I don't know if you ever tried to pay your rent on $5-something
an hour.  I've tried it and it doesn't work.

 So do I blame the workers for bad, stale cigars?  No.
And do I blame you?  Maybe.  But at the end of the day, your
greedy, corporate, profit-minded superiors are certainly to blame.
