***** would like to recall the message, “Sweets”
Some woman emailed me last week about catering. We had seven emails back and forth on it, until she said she’d pick it up on a certain date, did I want a credit card number, etc. Then an hour later I get a message containing only the text:
***** would like to recall the message, “Sweets”.
What is this, I thought? I emailed her. Nothing. I emailed again later. Nothing. Who the Hell does this? Do you understand how the Internet works? You can’t recall a message, like some crummy GM car. It’s not like shooting a carrier pigeon as it’s flying away. The email’s out there sugar. Have the balls to say, I changed my mind. That I get. Recalling a message? That’s just goofy.
(I had to look this up, and I now guess she was using Outlook. Some genius MS engineer invented this feature but forgot to mention that it only works if the person at the other end has Outlook too. [Which I don’t because I’m not an idiot.])
