Some days it takes very little to set me off at work. I know you all find this admission very hard to believe, given that I am such an optimist about everything.
Yesterday, I thought I was going to have to publish some kind of manifesto outlining all the things that people do that just wear me out. The readers of said manifesto could decide for themselves whether to tempt fate by continuing their behavior or to reign in their crazy selves.
Rather than bog everyone down with the entire tome at once, I’ve decided to parcel out the information as it becomes necessary.
Number one on the list: People who sign their emails, “Best”.
I can grant a partial exception to non-Americans who might do this. But seeing “Best” on an email signature makes me wonder, “Best what?” Best wishes? Best regards? All the best? What the hell? Surely they aren’t wishing me the best of anything, especially if they’re sending me a complaint.
Coming up next: Office Poopers.
