Nowadays, e-mail has become a common tool used in office for communication. People used e-mail to send out meeting minutes, data, information & etc. Sometimes you can observe some funny behaviors when you see people using e-mail.
Some think that their job function is to write and send e-mails only. When you ask them to work, they will tell you:
Engineer A: "I still have hundreds of e-mail haven't read one you know?"and show you the "whole-world-owe-him" face. :|
Sometimes I prefer to call-up the person to discuss the matter when we are short of time or for simple matters.
Me: "Ei! Do you know what is the program used to test this ar?"WTF?!?
Engineer B: "Can you send me a mail?"
Worse still, after you send out e-mails, you still need to call to inform the person to check his e-mail.
Me: "Ei you haven't reply me leh..."
Engineer B: "You didn't tell me you send me a mail what."
Some people love writing e-mails so much until they send e-mails to the colleague who is just sitting in front to ask for something.
There are also people who only know how to FORWARD e-mails instead of writing it.
E-mail from a Technical Marketing/Applications Engineer who supposed to answer customer's query but instead, he just forwarded it to us:
Sometimes people use short form or abbreviations to keep things short. My teammate, Miss HC is the laziest person I have ever met who fully utilized all these short forms.Like she's chatting on MSN.
