/sigh I love my mother. Nevertheless, she has no concept of Email etiquette
My Mother in law has myself and my mother on her E-mail chain list. Its a conversation to itself how many I delete, nonetheless we are both on it.
However, every time my MIL sends an E-mail invariably my mother will forward me the exact same E-mail within minutes So instead of getting just one crappy chain E-mail I get two.
Which means instead of 12 a day I get 24
Take it a step further
My step mother is also on this E-mail chain list
And she too invariably sends me the same e-mail. So I end up getting it three times
I have broached it to my mother and step mother to please look and see who it was sent too
For a while that worked.
Until my Mother in Law created a E-mail Distribution list so now in the “To:” Area it just says “My Distro List” Or it says “Undisclosed reciepents”
That is my favorite one.
It means I may get forwarded the E-mail from my mother, step mother, wife and all 3 of my wife’s sisters.
My Current In Box size in my Outlook? 2,973.
I would delete them but I live in fear of one my mothers asking me to forward them what they sent or asking me to reply to an E-mail that I no longer have.
Solutions are slim. I could ask my mothers to stop sending me E-mail. In each case it will cause devastation and pain as if I had threatened to eat my first born live on Springer in front of a live studio audience
In the case of my mother in law it also means I will piss off my wife. That is absolutely not an option.
I could opt to kill all my E-mail accounts which means I will be pressured in to reactivate them. due to guilt of being I told I do not love my mothers and mother in law. Same argument as above applies. So that is out as well.
Or I could just jump off a cliff.
