Not-personal email :(

Post  Maggie on Thu Nov 10, 2011 5:40 pm

This is one of the more ridiculous things in life...

Is it just me, or do you hate it when you log into your email and have 8 unread messages or so, and not one of them is personal? I mean, Groupons and newsletters are all great and everything. But somehow it just isn't the same as when someone REAL emails you. Because... they want to!

Maybe I'm just a sucker for letters/notes/things written just for me.

Anyone else?

I can say "ditto", "indeed", or "I concur" to everything you just said. Razz But…*le sigh* I very rarely receive email that's actually for me. It's like a once a month occurrence, though occasionally it's once a week. *sadness*

I remember when I had a critique partner—her novel was terrible, so it was a painful process—but I was always uber excited to get her emails, mostly from the fact that it was just for me, and also I wanted to know what someone unconnected to me thought about my writing. Smile

Yep, I hate that too. All my emails are either blog comment notifications (which I read weeks ago) or stuff from my uni. Heck, I barely even bother checking my emails anymore - I check them once a week at most.

Well. I agree on all counts. But even though I don't get personal emails all that often, I check my email a LOT. Razz But personal ones still make me happy. Vaaaary happy indeed.

@Amanda That absolutely BREAKS MY HEART. *takes care of situation*

@Matt Your email MADE MY DAY. As I already said in my reply. And I totally hate that! All kinds of notifications... it just gets depressing!

It's kind of in the same category as getting Facebook notifications that are comments on other people's statuses, or invites to invitations you have no intention of attending. (Wow. That's a mouthful if you say it out loud.)
