Reply-alls suck. I get it now. I get all the lame office humor about conference calls and intra-office memos. I may even enjoy Office Space more now.
A few weeks ago, I became part of a weekly event called Subway Wednesdays. An email would go out Wednesday morning asking who was planning on coming. Once I replied, however, I became bombarded by reply-alls. They all referred to an inside joke about a pinata from the office July 4th barbeque.
At first the magnitude of the emails annoyed me, but it was actually pretty funny...
Me: agh I keep getting email notices
and they are reply-alls to a lunch invite today
and they are all jokes about some girl named Liz marrying a pinata named Paco
Jenna: you're making this up
Me: and this last one:"Hey Alex, how bout we throw Paco a bachelor party?! Nothing but the finest equine for our ol' buddy! "Jenna: hahaha the people you work with are awesome
Me: except I know for a FACT they can not bring Paco to lunch today
at least not all of him
because his leg is in my cubicle
Me: hollowed out and full of Reese's cups
Jenna: that is grotesque, madamand incredibly tasty
Me: SPOILS OF WAR
