ok, ok. you've sent me an e-mail and you're pretty fussy about it, right? so, say, you add a read receipt. cheers. idiot.
i'll admit my job isn't the most high-powered, but i've got a lot of tasks to do, and yeah, maybe i'll get an e-mail that requires an urgent response. i can generally pick up on that from what's in the e-mail, so i read it. it doesn't need a read receipt. the person trusts that i organise my time well.
SO. you've got a poxy little query about some minutae with no deadline, and you want a read receipt. no, i'm NOT going to send you one - i will reply to that e-mail, i'll probably reply to it today, but i'm not going to give you the satisfaction of dissatisfaction with the speed of my reply knowing that i open my e-mails straight away because that's what it's responsible to do
read receipts, fuck right off. who's with me?
