UBS Intern Chose Wisely?

Things came down to hockey vs. UBS summer, and hockey won, which seems reasonable.

Hey [redacted at UBS],

I was on my way to the office this morning but I left my wallet with my ID in it at home. I am not going to be able to continue my internship with UBS this summer.

I have received a hockey opportunity that I need to devote 100% of my time too. With all of the training, skating, yoga, and spin classes that I do I would not be able to contribute as much time to UBS as I had originally hoped or that you would want out of me. I know you said you would be flexible, but these preparations consume most of my day 5 days a week and with the commute from home it would be impossible for me to give all the effort I want to both. I want to say a sincere thank you to you and your colleagues for helping me along the way and for the way you treated me yesterday. I am sorry that this is not going to be able to work out. Thank you again for everything.
