Using IM in a professional setting.

thisistheglamorous:

If you only learn two things from visiting my outpost in the digital world, please let it be these two things:

  1. If you’re using IM at work and you start it with “Hey” or “Sup” and don’t put anything else, you’re the definition of a monster. You have no business being in office let alone having a job that requires using IM as part of your professional work flow.
    Good: “Hey David! Hope you’re doing well. I need help with this problem…”
    Bad: “Sup.” [five minutes later] “You there?”
    NOPE. I’m not there because I refuse to answer IMs that don’t have a GODDAMN POINT. If you want to chat into nothing, go here. If you want to do work, chat me like a GODDAMN PROFESSIONAL. Ask motherfucking questions. Form motherfucking cohesive thoughts. Use it as a motherfucking tool to get your motherfucking shit done.
  2. Ice cream, in moderation, is the greatest thing in the world.

Ice cream is the only thing keeping me going these days.

I was having lunch at Whole Foods while four older Latinas next to me talked and laughed loudly after finishing their own lunch. They were sharing stories about raising their kids, and their ages ranged from about 30 to probably around 55. Finally, the oldest woman spoke up.

"Oh I think I have…

One of the best things I’ve ever read.
