Rant about emails... [Jun. 5th, 2002|01:22 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |aggravatedaggravated]

On Friday, one of our developers sent an email to our entire building to let them know about forthcoming changes to our primary business application. When it arrived, I read it, and actioned on it.

Today, when the application is now in place, I'm getting phone calls left, right and centre, and from my own staff saying, "What's all this about", "Why's it doing all this?"

I say, "Have you read the email from Jas on Friday?"

"What email?"

I stare.

They look. "Oh, that email... I didn't think it was important, so I didn't read it."

Grrrrrrrr!!!

Ah yes, but you don't feel so much better for having enlightened them? ;o)

I have a colleague who "refuses" to read e-mail. And we both work in an IT company! His refusal basically equates to him avoiding any e-mail that requires him to do something.
