No offense, but I'm going to go ahead and ignore you, mkay?

How would you respond if you received the following EMAIL from a work contact:

"Excellent can u update me with ure # so I have it in my files?"

A. Ignore them.
B. Write them back with a fictitious number so they'll get the clue that you don't want to hear from them ever again.
C. Write them back eventually and say, "I'm sorry for the delay, but I wasn't sure if that email was intended for me, or for your homey or your current skank, or what have you. You can always get a hold of me best via email, so feel free to contact me that way should you ever need my assistance in the future. Peace out, boyeeee."

D. I would send them an amusing graphic - something slightly risque, slightly suggestive...- with "my" imaginary phone number worked cleverly into the frame. Stego'd into the file (please, Save Bits - Use PNG!) would be the most atrocious, self replicating worm I could find that would -at a MINIMUM- cull his/her POP3 client for addys and start spam mailing porn to all of his/her friends...

But that's just me.

Note to self: never piss off Fred Sanford.

Bwahahahahahahaha! said...

lol. An email like that would make my day. (I probably wouldn't be able to stop laughing. It could get embarrassing. =) Then, I would politely and privately suggest that they use more formal language when sending emails to people who are more important than me.

I'd respond with my WORK phone number. Of course where I work they should be able to find that on their own.
