Hijacked
Someone hijacked Tim's streaming accounts over the weekend. Even if he somehow gets control again, I think the damage has already been done.

First day on the job
I don't want to alarm you... but being that you are the first female software engineer that our company has hired...?  You might find that there are those within your department who are a little curious about your presence here.
