Tuesday, January 10th, 2006 • 3 Comments on Please Mr. Postman, Look and See
If you’ve written me an e-mail since Thanksgiving and I haven’t responded, would you please resend? In catching up on my e-mail tonight I realized a bunch have been automatically deleted from my mailbox. Mea culpa. I guess I should add “answer correspondence promptly” to my list of resolutions for 2006.
But while I’m on the subject: if it takes me a few days (or a week, or a month) to answer your e-mail, please do me a favor and DO NOT respond within the hour to my e-mail.* In fact, feel free to wait at least a day to respond. There is nothing more demoralizing than clearing out my mailbox and having my relief and satisfaction dashed by that little mailbox flag popping up ten minutes after I hit “send.” Please, let me feel like I’ve accomplished something—if only for a day.
*This does not apply to you (and you know who you are).
