“Who the hell did that update and forgot to change the configuration?” “Notme.”
Notme is a coworker that has been here from the start, years before I came aboard. Curiously, I get his email. A lot of email. That’s why I created a mail folder especially for Notme.
Seriously, in a company like ours, email is probably the most essential communication medium. That goes as far as that when someone here has visitors waiting but can’t be reached on the phone, a search email goes out to all employees. And that means hundreds of employees! There’s a lot of such emails every day that tend to catch our attention and waste our time. On the other hand, we’re supposed to respond quickly to every important email.
