10 Annoying Email Habits

annoying emailsPersonally, I think email is such a fabulous invention! (It's fast, it's free, it's eco-friendly and it's easy.) And that's precisely why I can't seem to fathom how people somehow manage to ruin a perfectly good thing. Wondering what I'm talking about? From spam and chain mails to ridiculous email ids, here are 10 things you really shouldn't do with your email!
1) Probably the easiest way to show how juvenile you are would be to pick an email id like sexyroxy or ivegonebananas or shahidsweety. Sure it'll be a hit among your "circle" of wannabes but if you so much as try to use that email address for anything remotely professional, you can be sure you're going under. Resumes I read with those email ids generally hit the trash can first!
2) It's an email, not an SMS. So why would you use SMS lingo? Spending half an hour deciphering what you're trying to say is really not my idea of fun. I'd probably just junk your email anyway and pretend like I never received it in the first place.
3) Sending an occasional forwarded message (say a bunch of funny photos or a howlarious joke or even a social awareness message) is cool. But keep up that incessant spamming with ridiculous quizzes, spooky forwards that claim to bring bad luck for 7 years and other cr** I have no time to read and you'll only make your way faster into my "blocked" list. BTW there's a term for this disorder you suffer from. It's called forwarditis!
4) Big, fat, ugly fonts - I hate these with a vengeance. It's in no way artistic. Besides, I have perfectly good eyesight and don't need you to highlight, colour or capitalise your text.
5) This one usually happens in offices. Everyone is marked on an official email that requires you to mail back with some personal detail. You hit 'Reply all' and let the whole world read your details. Quite frankly, I don't want/ need to. Spare me the details and don't waste my inbox space!
6) Then there are the email wars! This is between two people who insist on arguing (or in their words 'sorting out differences') on a group email while the rest of us get an update every two minutes. Take it offline for heaven's sake!
7) When you want to send mass e-mails about some good cause or the other, always (and I repeat always) use the BCC field to enter e-mail ids. Bad enough I'm receiving a forward. It only gets worse when that creepy guy on your mailing list gets hold of my email address and tries to "make friendship" with me.
8) Another thing that really irks me is when people mail me with dozens of attachments that are so heavy it takes me all day to download. Haven't you ever heard of zipping files? What's worse is when they mail you files that only play in some software that you'd never think of downloading even in your wildest dreams.
9) Ever had a friend or colleague who always ended his e-mail with an annoying tagline? My advice to him: Stop trying so hard to sound cool, witty or whatever else it is you are going for by ending your emails with catchphrases like 'I don't drive fast, I fly low.' When you do it in Flash, the emails get heavier and I only dislike you more!
10) Here's another annoying habit: Sending an email that's all about the attachment and there's no attachment! Guess there are so many people that do this that Urban Dictionary actually coined a term for it - "attachment disorder."
