    I had a work colleague based stateside years back that didn't understand why I couldn't get a truckload of their product overnighted from Toronto to Vancouver.

    Back in the day I had a client in Idaho, a mining company that a couple guys from Vancouver had bought. They liked to mess with the employees sometimes. While we were there they passed around a quiz they'd found online to all the staff and to us. 10 questions, name the state capital city from a couple clues. They had a German lady in the office who did accounting and the guy I was working with was a recent transplant from South Africa. South African got 9/10, I got 8 as did one of the owners. The other owner and the German lady got 7. None of the American staff got more than 3 or 4 right.

    For the love of god please stop replying to emails with “thank you” as the entirety of the message for routine activities that don’t need it. I get enough email as it is.

    Bonus points if you don’t reply all to 20 people.

    Heh, came here to post something similar. A client of mine just got promoted, email announcing promotion went out to the entire division, and there have been at least 15 reply-all congratulatory emails. FFS.

    Pro move obviously is to reply all scolding the reply all people.

    My org. switched to using BCC to announce job opportunities (which are all around the country and world) and other news. It helps with the reply all issue, but unfortunately they also use varying subject lines which makes it difficult to auto filter these irrelevant to me email into a folder so they don’t clutter my inbox.

    The best is when they screw up something in the email so there are two, three or even four in a row for the same topic.

    I like my addition:

    And when it does, there's sand in the lube.

    That would make an over the top bumper sticker.

    She will occasionally cook meat for group dinners, especially camping. She won't touch it though, something I find really weird considering she spends hours cutting through and digging around people's innards for work. Apparently slicing into human flesh is perfectly fine but cutting a steak in half is over the top.
    But she's not considering EATING those people's innards, you think?
    More seriously, conceptually it's all perfect sense. She thinks eating animals, isn't awesome. And she worries about microbes. (Chopping her veggies after raw meat? Dude, you're probably lucky to still be alive!)

    Honestly, it sounds like you all get on really well - like real adults should - respecting the choices you each feel strongly about. Bravo.

    I always worry about doing that. Glad to know that I won't be alone when I do.

    Isn't it venmo that has you provide the last four digits of the phone number or something to try to prevent this? (I don't much care for venmo - even though paypal and venmo are the same company now. But that's a plus.)

    lol.

    I'm not annoyed that people give to nonprofits. But the nonstop barrage of emails from every nonprofit I have ever been associated with is very annoying. Each organization has probably sent a half dozen emails over the last 10 days. It's annoying AF.

    Congratulations for purchases. First home? Sure. First car? Maybe. Everything else, no.

    The constant barage of spam from Palisades telling me how excited I should be about the base to base gondola. How about getting some actual ski lifts open instead. They're failing epically (or should I say Ikonically?) with some excellent December snow. Their operations blog says they can't open Summit until they get 2 more feet of snow on the runout, despite the fact that Roundhouse, which uses the exact same runout has been open. Liars.
