I've been doing this recently, it livens the day up.
If you can code you can send out emails as if they came from someone else (pretty sure some websites do this), or just type out an email thread that looks convincing. It's a rather shallow form of entertainment though, so it needs to be done with a degree of sophistication to avoid being cheap #bants.
When it says "We look forward to hearing from you soon." I'm not actually looking forward to hearing from them at all, because then it means I have to do some work.
that a lot of people will email me asking how i am and then asking me a question, i'll reply saying i'm fine, how are you etc and then answer, and at best i'll get a thanks, usually no response. guess they didn't really care how i was after all :'(
Sometimes I get emails that say "polite reminder", but it's usually in all caps and bold and underlined and in size 48 font and followed by an explanation mark, and the email is marked high importance and they've requested a read receipt.
A small part of me thinks that they're not really intending to be polite, and that makes me sad. What is the world coming to?
but we were talking about a website that let you sent anonymous emails to people advising them that they smell and giving them tips on how not to smell, and i was tempted to send one to the guy who said he used to send loads of them to other people for a laugh, but i didn't
send emails to myself to remind me of things.
there's probably a better way to do this but I don't want to hear about it.
Except it's just from me. Because I literally just sent it.
Sometimes I make myself sad.
but i DO want to hear about a better way of doing this. something like an android app or something would be ideal.
there's loads of to-do list apps. but I've never used one and don't know if they work like that.
would be nice to get one that I actually used
Say you want to remember to pick the bastard kids up from your arsehole in-laws, just call yourself a few minutes before you need to set off and tell yourself to go.
advising how to remove the tracking device from my nasal cavities
of an evening, usually when drunk. Often it's just to remind myself to do something the next day but every now and again I'll give future me a pep talk or crack a few funnies.
I'll forget about it till the next day when I hear it and have a laugh. Brightens up the day.
