Email is something I love to hate. I love that you can send direct, immediate communications to one or more people in an instant but I hate… well, pretty much everything else about it.
I think Tripp and Tyler agree with me. These are the same guys that put together that conference calls in real life video and the same ones who now put together an email in real life video that’s equally as funny.
Here are some of my favorite parts:
The “out of office” auto-responder that everyone forgets to disable when they get back in the office.
“I’ll be on vacation from Tuesday, June 27 until two days ago.”
Another one of my email pet peeves. People auto-replying to everyone on the original email when their response need only go to the original sender.
“Why are you including me in this?”
And who hasn’t received an email from someone mentioning an attachment that doesn’t actually include any attachments?
If you haven’t received the email from a prince in Nigeria offering you a large sum of money, well then, you just aren’t doing email right.
Who doesn’t love those “bounce” replies from that mysterious “administrator” with enough indecipherable information to keep the CIA busy for 3 years?
Emailing someone in the corporate world? Expect a 3 word reply followed by a 5,000 word legal diclaimer at the bottom of the email.
