Better communication through technology

By Suzanne Strazza

At work, I am responsible for the very generic “info@...” e-mail inbox. I have my own also, but the general mailbox gets a lot more mail and what comes in there tends to be a bit more entertaining than in mine.

So the big thrill of my day is getting to work and checking my inbox to see what juicy items have come in overnight.

I would like to share one morning’s worth, minus the really appalling, raunchy, overtly sexual ones that can’t be repeated in print.

And, yes, I get a TON of those.
