Today, a co-worker called me to tell me she was going to send me an email, which is the most inefficient thing I can think of.
Other than this fake exaggeration of the true story above:
Her: Hey Jason. Did you get the carrier pigeon i sent you?
Me: you mean the one telling me you were going to call me?
Her: yup! cool. So i'm going to mail you a letter. It should be there in about 3 days
[3 days later]
I am writing you to tell you that I am going to send you an email. Once I have sent the email, I will call you to confirm.
