Email Tip of the Day

The thing about e-mail is that it makes uncommunicative people painfully apparent, much to the chagrin of those of us in technological fields who think that 24 hours is an awfully long time to wait for a reply. If you receive an e-mail that requires some work of you, reply right away and give your co-worker/client a clue as to when you'll get to their request. Even if you reply to say they'll have to wait, that's better than letting them stew about how irresponsible you are for not getting in touch with them. Ignore people and they get grumpy. Go figure.

So Parmer, I suspect you are the one not emailing people back within 24 hours because I can not imagine you grumpy, well, ever.

K-ris, I am a reformed man! And yes, Jen, I am the one to not (IN THE PAST) email people back if I think a reply is implied. :-) I am definitely NOT a morning person, so Jen, any grumpiness usually occurs between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 am. :-) Hehe!

Jay, it's true. I do appreciate the quick response to the Alias e-mail from yesterday. You've truly gotten much better.
