Right, I really got to find a good job doing something useful.
Yesterday saw about 100 emails being sent from all over the world by Executives within my company. They were all replying personally to a person's request for a security pass to let a trainer into the Mumbai offices. The replies were evident of the character filtration machine known as promotion. In summary - Reply To All, state you cannot help or are offering advice on how to help, state the bleedin obvious, reply to all instructing others to not to reply to all anymore, and finally ask to be removed from the mailing list.
I was in hysterics all afternoon, until the IT department closed off executive mailboxes to clean out the huge volume of emails (imagine it, 100 x every executive in the company globally).
Today sees us having dinner at Eat & Two Veg. Looking forward to it.

    I found this to be very funny. But then, I wasn't on the receiving end of all of those emails! *G*
