I see a trend and is not a good one. I hate it. You send a strictly work-related email with say "you have to send me blah blah in order to blah blah"....then you got this response:" OK, thanks : )"I mean, why would you send a stupid emoticon at work? This is not fucking Yahoo pager. I hope this is not a global thing. Or is it?

    We are moving form one side of the building to the other, so this morning I sent the Business Reply page to the architech doing the job. "This is what happens when people is not happy with their cubicles". Still no reply.

    I get these all of the time, and I hate when people respond but are not saying anything. How about for a response you do what I fucking asked you to do.

    OR

    Blow Me :0

    Thanks !!!

    This is not as bad as the fucking prayer chain letter emails.

    almost as bad as spam. I receive 3 "penis enlargement treatments" spam emails a day at work. Why me?

    I work in tech support and I get this several times a day.


    There's one girl who always just emails me with (in the subject line) -
    help!?!? [/b]

    Help you what, write a meaningful sentence?


    Or the equally obnoxious guy who sends thank-you emails with just -
    ty[/b]

    First, you don't need to thank me everytime I unhide your taskbar for you.
    Second, compose a nice, thoughtful adoration if you're going to make me waste my time deleting it.

    I think next time I get one I will respond with:

    GOD DOESN"T CHECK EMAIL, HE IS TO BUSY LOOKING AT PORN.

    oh indeed it is

    these are usually the ones who have to go all out in microsoft outlook.. super obnoxious cloud backgrounds, purple comic sans text, and flowers in their signature

    signatures

    Oh how I hate signatures. I don't care what that Mark Twain dude said, nor does it make you look clever if you use it as a signature.

    "man is the only animal that blah blah..."

    fuck that shit

    Fuck that shit, indeed.
    Some of the VPs where I work are all into that Dale Carnegie hoodoo. One guy used to send out all of his e-mail with an "inspirational" quote at the end. It got to be quite the running joke hereabouts...

    Comic Sans...

    Don't get me fucking started. I despise this font with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns.

    I tell you what else pisses me off. At work, we have a row of 6 traps (stalls) in which to "Drop the kids off at the pool". I hate having a bloke either side of me "Curling one" whilst I am tring to do the same. So I always take one of the end traps - only one possible neighbour...

    EVERY TIME today, whilst I am just about to get started, some clown comes in, and despite having a choice of 5 other traps, takes the one next to me.

    WTF?
