I know I am not alone in this…
You’ve experienced receiving these email messages–the ones whose subject lines are the same as they were 2 months ago, even though the subject is now completely different. Here’s an example – when someone asked you directions two months ago to the offsite meeting ( subject line = Meeting directions?), and you responded. Yesterday, they pulled up that message, cuz they knew your email address was on it, hit reply, and asked if they could borrow your powerpoint projector next Tuesday. The subject line still reads ‘Meeting directions?’
Pull my hair out!
