Sense and Sensibility....

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

First you get a mail inviting you for a talk of some kind by an eminent person…

That’s marked to the women associates in the organization…

Next you get loads of mails from people who are interested to go attend the talk…. Saying this is where they’ll take a bus from and would they please arrange for the same etc etc…

And this is on REPLY ALL….

And then when you are fed up of repeatedly deleting the mails from the inbox….

You get another slew of mails, this time from loads of other people saying, “Please do not Reply All”… etc etc….!!
It's amazing how the BRIGHT IDEAS strike about a zillion people at once!!!

Why why why… Why is it that people don’t have the sense to just reply to the mail and not reply all… why is it that they are hell bent on clogging up people’s inboxes…
Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy…………

Okie I gotta go…

I think I just received another set of mails to delete….

Phew!!!

  3. There's this particular default-alias, from which a dude wanted to come out. He sent a blank mail with 'Unsubscribe' in the subject line. Phoop came the reply from a top-level head - "Among the different ways of unsubscribing, the easiest one is to bid adieu" :D
