I had this conversation just now:
[20:40] Connie Park: have u seen a pic of my husband?
[20:40] andyfox1979: yeah
[20:40] andyfox1979: he looks indian
[20:40] Connie Park: he’s half korean and half white
[20:40] andyfox1979: wha
[20:40] andyfox1979: let me see another pic
[20:41] andyfox1979: i clearly remember an indian guy
[20:43] Connie Park: you declined
[20:43] andyfox1979: send me a link
[20:43] andyfox1979: dont send me a goddamned file what is this 1998
[20:43] Connie Park:
Come on people. It’s not 1998. If you want to send someone a file save everyone some time, upload it once (all kind of photo hosting options, FLICKR is one of the better ones) and then copy and paste the link into the email/IM/website.
My Mom is the worst about this. If my work Outlook is choking on one 18MB email I know my mom is trying to lay some photos she took (and didn’t resize) on me.
These people don’t understand that they can store files online. They probably think they can only check their webmail at home because they used AOL for so many years.
PLEASE CUT THIS CRAP OUT IT”S MAKING ME SO GODDAMNED PISSED!
