Thought waking up was the original reason for this thread?

We have a group mailing list our salespeople and distributors can join.

To join the email list you send and email to the list, then it sends back an email you must reply to, then you are added to the list.

This does two things. It makes sure you are an actual person by requiring you to send from an actual email address, and it makes sure the messages do not go to your spam folder or quarantine. I even have instructions for them to check the spam filter and whitelist messages from the list if they do not receive the confirmation email they must reply to then re-send the subscription message.

it amazes me how many of our sales staff do not seem to be actual people as they are not able to do this.

What's worse is my boss has me manually add them to the list. Of course since they could not follow through with the subscription steps they end up never receiving any list emails because they are in their spam folders/quarantine or their spam filters reject the messages and are unsubscribed from the list.

Are you sure this is not MONDAY or is it that people are morons every day?

Came in early @ 5:30 and will probably have to stay until about 5:00 this afternoon, getting stuff done at work. Beer and Wings sounds good right now.

I hear you there, we have several humanoid units here but I have doubts as to their being sentient.

I have met a few salespeople in person that I think are actually a virus, or at least pure slime.

Think they should all dress like Herb Tarlek on WKRP. My brother did when he was a salesman in the 70's and 80's.

Back when I was a press photographer in Alabama I spent a lot of time at the state legislature. One day the congressmen all decided anyone on the floor of the Senate or the House had to wear a coat and tie. The reporters were not happy. All the reporters dug through closets and thrift stores and brought in some horrendous Herb Tarlek like sport coats and hysterical leisure suits. Sine the rules said "Coat and Tie" lots of Bolo ties, clip on bow ties and various themed ties came in as well.

That was about the time I was ready to get a better paying job so I left that fudge cluster.

I'm still on Pacific time. Last full day in SoCal this trip. Still lots to do and my 964 is feeling neglected. I really should do something about that.

We have been getting rain. We are supposed to get a couple inches of accumulated crystalline rain tomorrow. If the rain we have been getting turns to snow for you, sorry.

We get freezing fog on rare occasions. We call it frog. We had some really cool hoarfrost on the trees last time we had frog.

It is Elvis' birthday today. I imagine his songs would have a little different meaning today.

All Shook Up - morning breakfast drink.
Can't Help Falling.
Nursing House Rock.
