Eeeeeeeeemail

Makin up a song about email in a chat log

#1:  my brain is exploding with email, I don’t understand
whyyyyyy
whyyyyyyy so much email

#2:  why are you getting so much email?
who is sending it?

#1:  many peeps

#2:  networking peeps?

#1:  all sorts of peeps. Some is forwarded from [university]. Some is colleagues. Some is friends, some is listserv, some is “your order has shipped”, some is my mom

#2:  “your order has shipped” is always nice.  Does your mom have an unsubscribe button?

#1:  hahaha unsubscribe mom from sending me stuff she thought I might like that is either irrelevant or I thought about it 3 years ago. Sigh.

    “Does your mom have an unsubscribe button?”

    I auto-filter certain family members that spam me incessantly. Gotta stay sane somehow.

    F***en A, I wish my asshole mother had a goddamn unsubscribe button.

    My family members email me with their personal problems all day long. I also get a lot of spam. I can relate!

    I wish people would pick up the phone more. I hate when a. If email chain could have been avoided with a live conversation.

    My dad email spams me all the time. He forwards on stupid sh*t that is insulting (since we have different political, religious, and social justice viewpoints) or just misinformation about stupid stuff like people whining about the price of gas. The make matters worse, he never calls me but instead tries to guilt trip me when I call him by repeating “I haven’t heard from you in a while. Why don’t you call?” It doesn’t seem to matter when I point out that he could call me. It’s sort of sad to say, but I think I’m done with my dad for now. I had a pretty tense call with him a few weeks ago where I basically kept throwing back at him the burden of the calling and I could tell he was piss*d when we hung up. Ugh!

    Email…I gave up on keeping up with email. As long as I get whatever an email relates to addressed before the situation blows up, that’s good enough for me. I am not an “Inbox zero” person at all.

    I get so much email, it’s crazy. And Google filers out much of the spam before I get it. I will be looking for the YouTube version of your song soon.

    No jnbox zero for me. I’m too lazy. My dad doesn’t check his email enough my brother checks and doesn’t respond and mom just writes basic stuff so no annoying family email. My extended relatives don’t email me but save all their annoying sh$t for FB.
