If Not Me, Who?

There are no real rules of engagement when it comes to returning emails.

Ever notice that?

Now I am someone who emails a lot. Emailing has become my primary form of communication because it can be really efficient if you have a lot of communicating to do.

One of the habits that I have developed is, replying to an email as soon as I read it — right away. And there are some people that I email that clearly have developed this same habit.

On the other hand, there are others who email ya back –

Oh—–WHENEVER.

We’ve got to figure something else out! Sometimes I’ll send an email on, say Monday, and I get a response back on Friday and by then, I don’t even remember what I said. (especially if the person has an AOL account because their replies don’t include the original message — what’s up with that?)

Anyway, as if I didn’t have enough to contemplate, now I’ve got to worry about trying to figure out who’s got what kind of email habit so that I can sort out:

  • Who only checks emails once a week
  • Who doesn’t check email at all
  • Who just forgot to get back to me
  • Who would rather communicate by phone
  • Or,

    Who, unlike me –

    just has better things to do.

    1. We AOL users have to check a special feature to have what you wrote in the e-mail. I don’t like that feature. Maybe none of us AOL folks like it.
