Company-wide reply-all email chain.
What a way to start Friday.
Colleague, in the process of trying to switch off a phone, has managed to accidentally call emergency services.
I have been instructed to send an all-staff email.
*slams head into desk with the force of a thousand suns*
F U C K M E.
"Hey Matt, there are people that would like new headshots done. Are you able to organise that?"
"Sure, give me a list of names and I'll get it sorted"
"Just send an all-staff email"
NO. FUCKING NO. NO.
IF PEOPLE ARE TELLING YOU THEY WOULD LIKE PHOTOS CAN YOU JUST WRITE THEIR FUCKING NAMES DOWN? IS IT THAT HARD?
GOD FUCKING DAMN YOU PEOPLE ARE TRYING REALLY HARD TO MAKE THIS FRIDAY FEEL LIKE A MONDAY.
Absolutely 100 per cent fucking off early I am not dealing with this shit.
@MattHatton please take me off this list
@liamvhogan The one thing I really liked about my old job was using Gmail. Muting that shit took zero effort. I have no fucking idea how to do that in Microsoft Outlook Corporate Email Service 365 2020.
@MattHatton delete your account IMO
@MattHatton related, there is a profound social division between type A workplaces where every now and then someone sets of a ‘RE: RE: Re: Your Boat Gently Down The Stream’ chain of shit, and type B workplaces where people use slack and pass tasks to each other with Jura (or whatever the latest whatever is). They will never talk to each other
@liamvhogan I once worked in a place that did *both*.
You got the RE: RE: RE: FWD: RE: and "Jared has assigned you a task in JIRA would you like to see it?"
@MattHatton so glorious. [shouting at the air] ‘How do I log into this’
@MattHatton old mate waiting for the nearest young person or woman to walk past and shouting ‘where’s my folders on the hard drive’
@MattHatton Get the Shooters Party involved in the "headshots"...
