why do people say that? it doesn't even make sense. the words are in the wrong order.
on gmail, if you write "attached" in an email but you don't attach anything, it'll ask you if you've forgotten to do it.
you should be grateful
For my information is it? No fucking shit, shitberg.
This site is borked.
Fuck Yourself Intensively
When I changed jobs I went from using Lotus Notes to using Outlook. In Lotus Notes the attachment appears in the body of the email, whereas in Outlook the attachment appears in that little bar under the subject. For the first few months I worked here I always referred to the document "attached below" even though it was actually above. What a fool I must have looked!
[/end of most boring post ever]
It's worse than 69 Hitlers
RTF format emails embed attachments in the body text.
They are a disgrace and an abomination.
HTML format emails add attachments in a list, to a field under recipients.
As is right and proper.
You can set Outlook to send your outgoing mail in a specific format (i.e. HTML, like a winner), but your replies to RTF mail will remain in the infuriating RTF format.
You can also set mall to be sent as pain text (if you must) or, I think, as Word format (if you're a total deviant).
Unsurprisingly, the Gmail design knobheads have recently made a change for the worse and decided that attachments can sit in an indistinguishable section at the bottom of your email. Kinda as part of the body text, but not really.
But what should I say instead?
"here you go!"
"I've attached the file for you"
files for other people in the company I just hyperlink to it. Then I can just hyperlink whatever word in a sentence I want. Doesn;t always have to make sense or anything. Sometimes I just say
not sure if it makes me look a dick or not, but I don't care.
then give them a series of clues, each more fiendishly difficult than the last, to find it.
Here I go where? I go here? I'm already here...
I think that's better, not sure.
you're not asking them to find it attached, you're telling them it is attached.
please find, enclosed, the document.
Admitedly its still not good english as it is using 'find' in a meaning like 'hey check out' or 'dont forget to look for'
But it just about works, and english is full of idiom and turns of phrase.
whats your point spaceman?
I was merely using that to illustrate that the format is more widely used than just in electronic format and is an idiom of english
Does that not work? SOMEONE FIX MY LIFE.
Also, someone used the word 'orphanized' in an email to me yesterday (in reference to a company). Might send them a bullet in the post.
rather it's expected.
I have a confession to make. I use "Please find attached..." and "Attached is the...", and sometimes "Attached the..." on a regular (ie daily basis). It certainly isn't ungrammatical, but I would accept that it's quite poncy. That said, it's quick to type, and acceptable for all levels of recipient in a company, from important data entry clerk to humble chief operating officer. That's why I do it.
There is a SECRET message hidden at the end of this post. FUCK YE! lmao
