    I may have already mentioned this, but i can't stand when people don't reply to the latest email in a big thread.

    It's 2019 and Outlook has this thing called 'conversation view' which groups all related messages together so you can clearly see if there are newer emails that answered the question instead of wasting time repeating stuff that has already been mentioned/answered.
    I work in a G suite environment, so no Outlook for me. But either way, the first thing I do, is disable conversation view. I miss far too many things that way.

    That's why I just say I have a 4" dick and lift weights to make up for it.

    Either way, the feature to sort "by subject" has been around since about 2003.

    Sirius XM? Once I learned I had to call to cancel, I opted to never subscribe to them again.
    Yeah, but it's so much fun with Sirius XM. You just bitch about the quality of the sound and how it cuts out for half your commute (exaggerated) and they drop the price to $60 a year. $5 a month is worth it for camping trips in zero-cell coverage areas.

    @ExtraSlow do you remember that show "Wife Swap"? Can we do a version of that where I can come live at your house for a week? You can send whomever you want to mine, there's just a cat there most of the time.

    On a side note, I wonder how many of those guys ended up banging the other woman in that show.

    On the topic of emails, I will literally send numbered, itemized questions to people and they will reply either without answering any of my questions, or only one of the questions, etc. Another thing I notice is people replying to emails asking questions that are very clearly answered within said email - they need everything spoon fed to them rather than actually reading the email themselves. Boggles the mind how people can operate like that in a professional environment. What should be 2 emails ends up being 6, and everyone's time is wasted.

    For all I know, you're the one coming out ahead. Pics of WIFE please.

    edit - To be fair (said in Letterkenny affect), I said you could send whomever you wish. It could even just be your dog - surprise me!

    My life when I worked at a 10,000 employee company that didn't have an IM system.

    Sounds like a nightmare - I worked for a huge global company before too and it was similar.

    Also throughout my career, I would say about 90% of meetings could be replaced with a quick email or memo.

    90% of emails could be replaced with a quick phone call, too. I hate holding a telephone in my hands and having to type several emails just to find out what a 14 second phone call could have done. We had a guy that was completely incapable of answering more than one question by text or email, and refused to answer his phone. It was a nightmare to have a problem that needed answers to a series of questions and having him as your support.

    There's time for writing after. I'll call the guy who actually knows what's going on and get a plan together. Once that decision is made, I can send an email to everyone else saying I talked to buddy and this is the plan, this is when it's happening and if you don't like it speak up quick.

    I had a situation two nights ago where I did what I just said, and everything went perfect. I have another one where someone from the office sent an email rather than just call me and ask, and we're going into day three with no resolution in sight because fuckin nerds who don't need to be involved somehow get cc'd on everything. Yeah it's all in writing so we all know what everybody said, but it would have been in writing two days ago too and it would have been locked down and done.

    When you're giving yourself a Q-job and the Q-tip breaks and gets lodged in your pee hole, and you have to wait at the lougheed for 14 hours before they can remove it.
