I Wish Real Life Was More Like Email

Are you plagued by the paper version of SPAM like I am? Don’t you wish you could hit the “JUNK” button on that stuff as easily as you can with your email? I know I’m not alone in this, because an awesome comic hit my inbox this week:

A Comic by The Oatmeal
This comic was created by The Oatmeal, a talented illustrator and humorist that everyone on the internet should know by now.

Some Other Things I Wish Were More Like Email:

phone-scarysubjectline

Phone Calls

I wish I could see a Subject Line of every phone call I ever got before picking up the phone. That way if I saw something undesirable, I could just ignore the call.

email-filters-wish

Long Meetings At Work

It would be awesome if we could set up filters the same way we can with many modern email programs for our ears! Whenever we get stuck in a long meeting that we only need a small tidbit of information from, we could filter out all the fluff and have the important stuff dropped right in front of us. It would save me tons of time, but I’d miss out on a few power naps.

block-sender-baby

Everyday Social Situations

I would probably go out way more often if I could block sender on obnoxious people at bars, clubs, movie theaters, and anywhere else fun is often spoiled. The world would be a much better place if we could mute all of the people that bring us down.

Email’s Not So Bad

It’s easy to be annoyed with the emails we receive, the programs we use for it, or the barrage we sometimes get when we mistakenly get put on the wrong list. But when I look at other communication methods like these, it reminds that email’s not so bad. And I bet a lot of that is because of great technological strides like DMARC.

So thank you DMARC. Keep up the good work. And please go see what you can do for other moments in my life when I need to communicate with other human beings.
