Opinion: Email to medical company. 3/19/2022 10 AM.



Thank you for the amazing service you provide to New York City and the United States.

First and foremost I always treat all your staff with the utmost respect at all times. That is regardless of how they treat me.

Your company is an asset to New York City. We are lucky to have you.

For the most part, your staff is very friendly. Unfortunately today that was not the case.

The doctor that helped me today was a little rude. I treated the doctor respectfully. I did not sink to the doctor’s level.

Long story short, last night someone chased me into a store on East 34 Street and tried to attack me. The whole thing was recorded on the security video at the store. The NYPD showed up and took my information for a police report. 

The person who chased me into the store drugged me with some type of smoke. I still feel it now and it happened last night.

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t do anything illegal.

I treat people respectfully regardless of how they treat me.

Not saying this would happen but if one of your staff poured a can of paint on my head I wouldn’t react negatively. I would say thank you, leave, and report it if it was caught on video.

I treated todays doctor with the utmost respect even when the doctor insulted me for no reason. I can care less that the doctor today treated me disrespectfully. I’m just letting you know just in case the doctor gets more complaints about how the doctor treats people you will know that a lot of people are complaining. If I’m the only one, then it’s no big deal too because I’m never going to mention it again.

If I am assigned the same doctor again in the future I will continue to treat that doctor with the utmost respect regardless if the doctor continues to insult me for no reason.

I value my relationship with your company more than one person insulting me who doesn’t even know me. 

Thank you again for the stellar service you provide for New York City. Everyone who is working for the medical field in New York City deserves to be treated like gold by the patients. The service is that crucial and great.

Publically, I have the utmost praise for your company to anyone I ever speak with. I highly recommend you.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Letter to Baruch College about respecting the opportunity.


Greetings Baruch College,

I completely understand you have a large school to run with many students. 

I’m patiently waiting for the instructions regarding the probation appeal.

I’m never submitting another student grievance under any circumstances. 

Being a student at Baruch College has many benefits. 

I just paid my T Mobile phone bill, the best plan with mobile hotspot, for more than a year in advance. That is a huge benefit for a homeless person. That’s great for my studies, my lifeline, etc.

I just paid for MTA tickets I’ve accumulated over the years, so I don’t get arrested in the subway this winter. I could have run into issues with the transit police if I didn’t take care of the MTA tickets. The transit police are always very nice, but rules are rules. 

I was able to buy a new laptop for school today. I was using a Google Chromebook. Now I realize that a Windows computer is necessary for my classes. I picked one up on Amazon for a great deal. 

I can list dozens or hundreds of additional reasons here. 

Last but not least, I’m becoming a 10X better writer thanks to my professors. By next semester, I believe my future professors will see the dedication and commitment I’ve made to improve my writing because it’s such a crucial part of the college experience. 

I used to think college was unnecessary when I was younger. I realize now that college prepares me for the real world because I did everything in reverse order. 

With the platform provided by Baruch College, I will have a roof over my head one day. The sooner the better 🙂 

All my assignments are being turned in on time or early except for one small homework that I couldn’t complete without my windows computer. I let my professor know the situation and he is very understanding. 

I earned two A- on the other assignments. The one I’m late for will be submitted in a few days. In the meantime I’m studying with the laptop I have.  

I appreciate the consideration that you have provided for me as one of the thousands of students. I look forward to hearing your instructions when you are available. 

Have a great weekend. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
