She just asked me to check up on an e-mail I sent last week, with no response from the receiver. Most people would, at this point, say "would you mind sending a follow-up e-mail?"
No, she says "Well...you know, it's been a week, so I just wanted to see if you wanted to maybe write her a note, just to see how things are..." (said in a soft, "dealing with irate morons" tone of voice)
Me: "I'll send her an e-mail, thanks!"
Woman: "Maybe just, you know, attach the previous message, just a reminder, you don't have to write her another e-mail..."
Me: (starting to get cross) "Okay, yes. I'll send her an e-mail. Thanks."
Woman: "You don't have to send her a whole new e-mail, just mention the previous message, remind her that you'd talked about this before..."
Me: (starting to raise voice) "Yes, I know how to send an e-mail."
Woman: "Oh, I'm not telling you how to write an e-mail, I just...you know, wanted to suggest that you just send her the message you sent before, just as a friendly reminder..."
Me: (now an angry, irate moron): "I KNOW how to send a follow-up e-mail. Okay. Thank you." *hangs up phone*
Who are these tards?!? Argh, now I'm all cross-wise and irritable.
