Most of the emails I read these days are -(Sent from their iPhone/Pad..or far Galaxy) . Aiiiich!!
Gone are those days when emails used to end normally and a whole new trend of adding techno-centric gadget prideful signature has evolved.
Is it true that the folks who does not yet have OR not preferred to have an iPhone or iPad - if an email signature through such device has a one such with such hint depicts a boastful 'prestige' act. ?
Personally, when I get an email reply on some serious issue from someone which says "Sent from my iPad/iPhone/..far Galaxy" - I sometimes tend to conclude that the person places little value on their time when it was a very sensitive talk in a case where sender probably expected more responsible response with quality time. I might be wrong - however if I try to analyze the rational - two simple possibilities comes to my mind - (1) either the sender is prideful and a boaster (2) OR the user has no idea how to change the signature and hasn't even bothered to learn where it comes from.. BUT I am trying to analyze a 3rd possibility here. Please enlighten me with your comments :-)
With smart phones we should also grow smart and I guess I really know how to remove that signature from my gadget BUT am still using it - reason ? so that people can excuse me for my brevity and typos and purely for a quicker response. But I still prefer to respond all my mails with enough detail and adequate data and quality time if it is such sensitive.
Well.. trend has definitly changed. Often we check mails on the go!! Until otherwise study on behavioral science proves, I believe reading OR replying an email on a laptop or on a iPhone would affect or change our decisions at all !!
And most of them so called proudy and douchy folks wont probably ever have a signature - "Sent while on my brand new Lexus" and even if they do - I believe email signature would be such a unfortunate place to do so!
