  1. Something sick happend right now, just when i clicked this vid with (Email) in its name. My ipad said the PLING becouse i got a email… Thats pretty scary :////

  2. This reminds me when someone sent an email and included everyone in the company when they only meant to include someone who happened to have a name similar to the email group and they clicked tab to select the user and the group was first on the list to select. This was sent to over 30,000 people so people kept hitting reply all saying "I think this email was sent to me in error, I am not X." Then after about 5,000 people replying all with that same message people kept replying all saying to "Stop replying all, you're locking my inbox." in which others replied "Why are you replying all then?" It kept going for an hour or two and the Chief Technology Officer of the company had to get involved because everyone's inbox was full. He told the IT team responsible for the email server to shut down the group email address and delete all the emails under that group email that occurred in the last few hours. Before they could actually do anything the email server was already crashing due to the load of emails going back and forth and due to people with auto-replies set for vacation it just made it much worse. Almost everyone's inbox was maxed out with messages. Long story short, don't always hit reply all unless you want to be fired for crashing an email server over and over. The CTO gave IT permission to unplug the server rack controlling email until they could get the problem resolved. Just imagine how many emails they needed to delete. They kept bringing the server online for short bursts to delete bulk amounts of emails and then back offline to prevent people from sending more. The last thing I heard of it the CTO sent an email to the entire company and said "Anyone who hits reply all to this email will be fired for being too incompetent, I have the CEO's permission even if you are not under me to fire you. The email from before was sent in error, you all don't need to reply all to tell one person he sent an email in error, just delete the email and be done with it." Thanks for reminding me of this, it was a funny day at work for sure.

  3. hello in regards to your email "TripandTylor"…
    I found it very funny..and almost fell off my chair laughing.. 😂😂..!!

    Kind regards
    The emailer…!

  4. I only wish this included the annoying "Thank you" message with full auto signature! Seriously, if you appreciate my message, show me by not adding to my inbox.

  5. You forgot the example of being added to an email trail where too much is shared by not cutting it off – like details that shouldn't have been shared, or a date that shows this sat in someone's inbox for far too long and is now a crisis at the last minute…

  6. Yes in large corporates you have to

    1. Copy everyone possible in so you are not accused of failing to communicate

    2. Everyone copied in has to make some sort of reply to prove they are contributing.. But nothing that sounds too decisive (see 3)

    3. No one does anything decisive so they can't be blamed when things don't turn out 100 % positive

    The net result.. We all spend our working lives processing hundreds of e-mails a day and not achieving anything.

    Then because no one has been doing anything constructive the company goes down the tubes and we loose our jobs.

    Either only send e-mails to a single recipient.. OR use one to one chat apps in the same way.

    I was once threatened with the sack for refusing to always use reply all!

  7. How About "Chat" in real life? Like when you go onto a website and they keep asking if you need anything. Love these, thanks!

  8. The Reply-All situation was spot on. It annoys the living hell out of me when people decide to use Reply-All on an email that was sent to dozens of people whom which have nothing to do with it in the first place.
    Do yourself and your company a favor: If you need to send an email to a large group of people, please use BCC (blind carbon-copy) to prevent absolute mayhem.

  9. Bolsonaro17 pra destruir o foro de são paulo e este e. Plano macabro de lula pra destruir os brasileiros! Fica a dica todo brasileiro deve derrotar o partido dos trabalhadores! Digam nao pra eles e seus planos anti_ patriotas!!!

  10. Lool at the Nigerian! Guys please stop…not all Nigerians are like that. Def not with that agbada and wrong accent…haha!

  13. funny but you defo need more women in the video. it’s not just guys who use email while working in offices…

  14. The last one I got:

I am Dr. yousef zongo the Bill and Exchange manager in our B.O.A which is Bank of Africa Ouagadougou Burkina Faso West Africa .
