Chelsea : Hi, my name's XXXXX XXXXX I might be able to help you with these questions. But first can I ask if this is a timed assignment?
Customer:

hello, yes it is timed..you have about 3 hours.

Chelsea : That won't be a problem at all! If I get it to you by 9:00 ET will that give you sufficient time to review the answers before you submit it?
