FU to all you assholes who aren't responding to my e-mails. On a personal level I don't care. But in business situations you should respond at least within 2 business days.

So FU for not replying after a fucking week.

If someone sends me something after hours, I don't really have the time or brain power to answer a complicated email that night. But, I will get to it first thing the next day. During the day, I will answer the email immediately or within a couple hours.

It depends on who sent the email and what it was concerning. 98% of the time, it's instantaneous. I reply back as soon as I get it. The other 2% of the time I may wait a day...never more than 2 days though.

The answer is when I'm good and god damned ready to reply, that's how long it takes. If your question requires more thought or research than the time it takes me to type the email response, then you'll wait until I have enough time to put in the thought and or research to get you an answer. If it's 3 days, so be it. I didn't ask for your email and I owe you nothing because you decided to send it to me. When I get a moment to look into your query, I'll have a response for you. If your query is of a time sensitive nature, I may put something else off to reply sooner. I'm a busy mother fucker and I could really give two shits about you and your need for instant gratification. Everyone thinks nobody's got anything better to do than to wait for the "new mail" sound and fire off a reply ASAP. Some of us have shit to do.

If it's a simple matter that requires little or no thought on my part, you'll have it the next time I look at my inbox. Within 30 minutes or so.

Depends on the request. Most of mine are answered within four hours if I like the person. If not, you'll be waiting a while.

Since I have to get on the VPN and fire up Outlook or go through the webmail interface - I check my work email when I feel like it. That's generally once a day, sometimes twice. Sometimes, I skip a day.

I love the emails that are followed up by a phone call after 10 seconds of recieving it "Did you get my email?". Fuck you all I'll answer when I answer and not a second sooner. Emails were supposed to improve communication and efficiencies, from where I sit people are enslaved by them.

I'm one of those assholes that asks for a 'read receipt' on some of my messages so if I know someone has read my mail and didn't get their thumb out of their ass and reply to me or take an action I feel justified in busting some balls. Not all messages, just the ones involving money and customers. That being said, I'll check and answer e-mail maybe 2 times a day and respond to those that need it then.

Work related is imperative. Non-work stuff I am SO bad at answering, yet I'll take the time to post in this thread.

Every time I get one of those, I always choose not to send the read receipt back.

...HA!... even though it bugs me that you do... I totally understand why. Email is so lame, why did we stop using the phone?

I work in radio, so my boss sends us email after email. Were a short staffed station, so he micro-manages a hell of a lot. In addition to being a total Jew, he likes to send us email after email about every flippin detail of the station. He does it to the me being one of only three board-ops and the on-air staff of the station...DURING THE SHOW'S.

And it's always something. I never respond. He acts as if I'm supposed to respond like I'm his personalized negro. I either respond or I don't. The next time that I see him, I will either ignore him or knock his 60 year old Zionist-Jew ass on the ground.
