And Then He Said…

“I’ve found that with email it takes people longer to get back to you, or ignore you, than you think it will.”

~ Zen-Den

Well.  Okay.  You’re right.  But I don’t have to like it– now do I?

And how am I supposed to know if they’re just pokey little puppies about returning my emails?  Or if they’re really ignoring me?  Hmmm?  Answer me that one, He-who-talks-in-koans.

<sound of me muttering while stomping out of the room>


[The WP spell checker just told me that “humph” isn’t a word, but “Humph” is a word.  And I just reset the spell checker to always accept a lower case “humph” as a word.  Doesn’t WP know that not all situations call for a capital letter “Humph”?  Honestly, who creates these spell check thingies?]

  1. All I can say is, humph! 😉

    (My spellchecker says spelling humph with a small h is OK with it…..actually, my spellchecker is pretty much OK with spelling any word anyway you want.)


  2. la p, you make me laugh.

    I rarely bother people with emails, so if I send one to you there is a point to it. At the least, a simple acknowledgment of receipt would suffice. Even better would be returning my email with a brief message answering me. Is that so much to ask?


  3. I think my typepad spellchecker refused the word blog which is pretty ironic. I hate having my spelling automatically changed, especially when I’m trying to write in French. It comes up with some strange words/sentences if I’m not watching. 🙂 I’ve been dealing with the NO e-mail response from the school district all spring. It makes me want to tear out my hair!!


  4. Margaret, I know what you mean about pulling your hair out. I cannot figure out why responding to email on a timely basis is so difficult for some people. Lazy? Rude? Disorganized? It bothers me to no end– and they seem blissfully unaware of the emotional damage that they inflict by being so discourteous.
