E-Mail Dissing

Have you ever finished an e-mail, sat back to re-read it, and thought, “Damn that’s good. I can’t believe I wrote that. [insert name here] will surely believe that I am a genius and will revere and respect me more than ever”? You then click the send button with the knowledge that you have just written and sent a letter worthy of those exchanged by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Perhaps yours will be collected in an anthology someday, and professors will require their students to read your collected letters to better appreciate the psyche of the 21st century writer.

You wait a couple of days with no response.

Then, you get one. It says something like, “ROTFLMAO. I konw what u mean. L8r.” The bastard didn’t even bother to run spell-check nor to fully spell out words. If only you were endowed with the force like Vader you could choke the person through the binary-ether.

However, you are not a Sith Lord so revenge is out of reach. Your only option is to send them chain-emails over and over again in a passive-aggressive attempt at punishing them for their ignorance. “Send this to 10 people or your liver will malfuntion!”

    i love how you go on this rant about people not spell-checking, and then at the end of the post you misspell “malfunction.” just thought i would bring it to your attention.
