From the Beat Poetry as Communications Department

by Purple Wyrm on October 24, 2006

The complete text (or more accurately subject line, since the client in question is yet to realise that you can type in the “big text area” as well as the “little text area”) of a support email I received from a client today…

Hi pls look at background at to – it has a BLOCK AFFECT IN THE IMAGE!!!

I was tempted to email back something along the lines of “I’m sorry, it’s company policy to only accept emails written in English”, or even “What the hell are you talking about!?” but I bit my tongue and sent a polite request for clarification.

I honestly think some of our clients are using random text generators to compose their emails to us. How else can you explain the fact that they can be perfectly articulate on the phone while their emails resemble second rate beat poetry?

Rather tired and depressed at the moment, which is why there haven’t been many updates lately. Basically just a combination of work stress, health issues (nothing serious it turns out, but very worrying there for a while) and the need to get my tax done ASAP. I’ll pull through it in a few weeks. Probably.
