Email Etiquette....

What do you think?

I have turned into one of those people that doesn't care for "Forwarded" jokes.
The good ones sure....like ones I haven't heard before.
But the ones that have been passed around since the dawn of emails and internet...please do not forward them to me.
I have a friend that EMPTIES!! her inbox to me. I just delete them. The cute photos for some reason does not come thru anyway.

But that's now my real question....which is...What do you think about when you email someone and they NEVER answer you back?
It that not the rudest thing?
I sat down and typed out the email, askin' questions that needed to be answered and they NEVER respond!
What the Hell??!!??
Why have an email address if you're not going to use it?
It's not just for order shit online from Amazon.

I have 5 email addresses.
One for this blog and all things VelvetTush.
One for all things VelvetTush on MSN....I have to maintan that ID.
One for the bag business.
One for orderin' shit online from Amazon and other online items.
One for my own personal use...family and friends use that one.

And I manage to respond to all personally address emails that are sent to me.

I know that I'm not the most busiest person, my time is my time but still. I would think that any person with 2 brain cells could do the same thing and reply to me.
I understand busy. I understand that people with productive jobs to do can't drop everything to email me back....But Still.
You managed to forward me umpteen bazillion old freakin' jokes! You could have just as easily hit reply and said, "Sure, I'll call you later."
But No!

What do you think?
Am I outta line in thinkin' I should get a reply to email?


Next time we'll chat about blog comment etiquette.

I do not usually even look at forwards. I just delete them. You just never know what is attached to them anymore and why take the risk.

I couldnt agree with you more!!! If I send an email with questions then yes i do expect a response...OH shit did you email me?

I would much rather a "i'll call you later" email than all the recycled jokes.....I think you deserve an answer...even if it's short and sweet.

I try to reply to all my emails, but everyonce in awhile an email will slip thru the cracks and I forget to respond. I normally don't forward joke emails, unless its really funny and I think people would enjoy. I don't do the chain letter type forwards. I hate those!

I totally agree, I have a friend that not only sends that sort of thing daily to me at work, but JUST in case I don't get it there she sends them to my home addy as well. Needless to say my trash bin gets pretty full at both places!

What I hate is when I have composed a well thought out e-mail, addressing a variety of things with one or more questions that usually requires more than a "yes" or "no" answer and I get a response that says, "that'll be great!"

Oh gosh...I hope I've replied to all your emails.

How frickin' hard is it to copy & paste a good joke so the next recipient doesn't have to open 50 emails from people they don't know? Ugh.

THAT is why I have a blog. All of my dearest friends were too busy to respond to my e-mails so I was forced to find internet friends who at least fake sympathy when I've got a stomach virus.

I HATE forwards. Especially ones that are just full of lies about whichever political candidate they hate.
