I don’t even work in an office, so I can only imagine what it must be like at the workplace.
and like most things I’m probably making a big deal outta nothing, but I HATE when people “reply all” to emails. Â (I normally don’t like to use the word “hate”, and will usually only use it when discussing mice, bats or any kind of candy with the word “gummy” in it. Â Â But Reply All emails, I HATE.
It’s one thing if it’s a bunch of buddies who are going back and forth with a lively email chain, but when it’s people I barely know talking to each other about shit I don’t care about and including me on their everrrrry ssssssingle worrrrrd… it drives me crazy! Â Who’s got time for that?
I sit on 4 boards, which I enjoy and am happy to do. Â But one person sends an email to everyone, and then for the next weekandahalf I have 300 emails to sift through because everyone and their mother is “replying all” to the emails.
It’s bad form and it wastes valuable time that I could be using to play Chat Roulette.
While I’m on the subject, you also don’t have to reply “thanks!” to text messages. Â “Matt, what time is the meeting?” Â ”4:00″ Â “great! thanks!” Â Stop. Â It’s implied. Unless you just received a gorgeous Friday Puppy tshirt in the mail, you don’t need to thank me with another text message. Â Do you even realize how hard it is to text message when I’m on my motorcycle?
sorry, I woke up on the wrong side of a lonely bed. this morning. Â :(
