Are these sentences OK? we are short a staff. I'm surprised you asked for my help. He used to sit here all day waiting for you to return. (a dog) I don't know everyone who goes in and out of the building. Why would someone want to steal something who's got everything?

Agree with below. I think #5 sounds natural this way... 1. We are short-staffed 2. Correct 3. Correct 4. Correct 5. Why would someone steal something that already has everything?

We are short -staffed. All others are OK but the last one is a little awkward. Laura’s rewrite is better.
