If you do this in an email, I hate you

Brilliance from theoatmeal.com:

There are several more examples there, each more infuriating than the last. My favorite line: If you don't know what BCC is, then you probably shouldn't be using email.  Worth the click.


  1. A couple days ago, I actually changed the hospital-required legal disclaimer in my signature to the DoucheSpeak one on The Oatmeal. I'm waiting to see if anyone ever notices.

  2. Additionally, if you don't know what the difference between "Reply" and "Reply All" is, payroll needs to garnish your wages and distribute it to everyone who had to read your insignificant reply.

  3. Format articles and pamphlets to around 60-65 characters for each line with hard returns after every line. On the off chance that a peruser's product wraps lines in an unexpected way, your content might be difficult to peruse.
