#77 No more corporate emails…woo hooo!!!


I remember coming back from holidays to over six hundred emails!  I mean they weren’t from six hundred different people – no, that would be way too obvious.  Forty percent of them would be from the one person – who on finding I was off work, would email my colleague three to four times a day asking about a shipment of laptops, or software or whatever I was shifting, er I mean selling at that time.  Thing is, that one person, would cc me on every conversation they had with my colleague.  One email would have been perfect – ‘all sorted, enjoy your holiday’.

I would just be copied for the sole purpose of raising my blood pressure on my return from my holiday.

Now the only emails I get are from my MA in writing – nice, friendly helpful emails, and from Amazon and Moshi Monsters – apparently My Moshi misses me.

Then of course there was the email Nazi within my own company, usually disguised as a customer service manager (Sorry Sean!) who when queried why a customer issue was taking so long to resolve would re-send an email that I had not replied to three weeks ago!!  I mean how good was their filing system?  I had the best intentions in the world about filing emails – but could I ever find that crucial email from 3 months ago – no chance.

So now I am free from the purge of corporate emails.  No longer does my heart sink as I open the Inbox.  My blood pressure and psychological mood are no longer controlled by ‘Outlook’.

Could I ever go back to that Inbox grindstone?  I bloody hope not!  I will just be opening fan mail from readers of my latest book – oh sorry did I nod off there?
