Okay, so am I the only one who had teachers/authority figures put the fear of god into them when it came to submitting assignments or meeting deadlines through the internet? Like, when I was a wee turnip, the first day of class always had a little point where the teacher would specifically go over the zero tolerance policy for any and all “my printer didn’t work”/”the internet was out last night”/”i might have missed that email” type of shenanigans.
Now, I’m trying to talk to this dude who made our website via email…and he is all about the “i must have missed the email” excuse. I was trying to schedule training for today, so I can actually start working on that mess of a website…but he never responded to my question of “Is 10am okay?”. We just never chose a time. So I emailed him minutes ago to be like “I guess we’ll have to pass on 10am. Is Thursday okay? If I don’t hear from you, lets assume that Friday is better!”
When I’ve been emailing him like crazy about where the holy hell the blog section of the email went. After like the fifth email, he goes, “I thought I hit send! Haha, sorry!”
A sales manager asks a question, and CC’s me on it…when homeboy didn’t respond, I emailed him again asking the question, and he goes “oh, I saw that email! I must have not responded to it!”
Like, holy fuck dude! That isn’t okay! I’m trying to get shit done over here, and you’re acting like the computer itself is in charge of responding to emails. Like “omg can you believveeeeeee that I must have not responded to it?” You “must have” not responded to it? Well no shit, man, that’s why I’m blowing up your inbox right now.
