i am not the usual wife. i don't nag V over the phone. i usually avoid nagging him, in fact! but there are days when i HAVE to! the 'HAVE to' could be coz of a couple of reasons. like me having to tell him something, me wanting to bitch about someone, me confused over what to make for dinner, or me feeling d urge to trouble him. but i don't like calling. *if u've been reading this blog, u'd know my inherent dislike for the usage of a telephone for anything other than work!* so like a good husband, Vin mails me every day from work. once in the morning. then, when he takes a lunch break. *yeah, he's very cute n all. rite!*
i didn't get any mail yesterday. and it was almost his lunch hour. so i sent in a polite reminder mail saying "my mail?!?"
an hour passed. no reply. two hours. still no reply. now, if u know me, u would know that i'd be really irritated at this non-responsive and irresponsible behaviour. *i'm a drama queen. rite!*
so i went back, *to my inbox, of course* clicked compose, typed V in the "to:", pressed enter, skipped subject line and typed in the message: "how dare u not mail me?! now have lunch and mail me. pronto!!" and promptly clicked on send.
if i were in outlook, this mail would've gone thru. subject line, or none.
but, BCOZ i'd skipped out the subject, and bcoz i use gmail, *ONLY bcoz* the kindly virtual soul warily asked me "send without subject?" and THEN fortunately, for everyone concerned, i checked the recipient id. it wasn't addressed to MY Vin, but d Vin who heads my ex-organization's current US office! based in NY. and THIS would have been a little past HIS lunch hour. geez.
for a minute, i was tempted to click send anyways. JUST to scandalize d other vin. but then, i've decided to try and be less wicked this year. so i let it be.
of course, i resent the mail with the correct id to the correct recipient with a subject line of : "non-receipt of daily mail"
did i tell u, i love gmail?!
