:agreed:the amount of these I get at work is very very sad
I got added to the most annoying e-mail list at work a few months ago. Most of the folks e-mailing on it live in the US and Europe, so while I'm sleeping, they're e-mailing. One time, I went home and when I checked my e-mail the next day, there were 650 e-mails from that list. I spent 30 minutes just deleting them. :lol: That's my personal record so far.I got fifty or sixty emails in the span of a half hour. It was pretty awesome.
That's almost exactly what happened at my old job, but the person who initiated the email, asked that everyone hit reply all if they were looking for someone to switch shifts with. The email was meant for a group of say, 30 people, but instead they sent it to every department, at every office, across 3 provinces. :lol:Heh. Today at work someone accidently used an application user notification address for a program that, like, my entire line of business uses when they meant to use a much smaller support address. The result was one of those classic emails that goes down like this:
Issue that needs to be resolved.
Response from the right guy asking for more information
Two emails of related back and forth.
"Hi, I don't think I should be on this distribution list."
"Me too. Please remove me."
"Me as well."
"Yeah, me too."
"Listen, this email distribution list was used in error - please stop hitting reply all asking to be removed."
"Yeah me as well. I shouldn't get this."
"Seriously guys, stop replying all."
"Hey, could someone take me off this distribution list?"
I got fifty or sixty emails in the span of a half hour. It was pretty awesome.
Seriously, how is it that I either completely despise you, or think you are utterly brilliant? :lol:These are all too familiar.
My favorite, though, is 'print, sign, and fax back to me'. I have a few tablets and PDF annotation, but... sure, fuck trees anyway. Let me just move these polio medications and phonograph cylinders aside, and I'll get that faxed over right after I finish doing the Charleston and showing off my brand-new pork pie hat. Could I get a telegram for confirmation?
