You paid how many hundred dollars for that office suite? [Feb. 14th, 2003|04:56 pm]

Why do I get idiots sending me spreadsheets without formulas, with all the numbers added up by hand?

Why do I get idiots sending me spreadsheets with multiple numbers per cell, separated by slashes? (with the top column labeled something like (per unit/total))

Why do I get idiots sending me 1 page plain text Word documents attached to plain text emails? Just include the text in the email!

My god, people.

That bit with the word documents drives me nuts

The last few places I've worked doing e-mail administration, it would floor me how many people would have entire conversations via Word documents sent by mail.
