I have been traveling and checking most of my email on my smart phone. The other day it took my phone what seemed to be 20 seconds to download a message. It was probably only 8 to 10 seconds, but it felt longer because of all the email I had to read.
The time-consuming message? Here is all it said: "Thanks, Lynn."
The writer's signature block, including a fancy company logo, caused the slow download.
I usually appreciate people's kind thanks. But that message just felt like a time waster, especially since the person was thanking me for a message in which I had thanked her for some helpful information.
So it may have been intended as sincere thanks, but it felt like no thanks.
Do you feel as I did when you read messages on your phone? Please share your view.
