Me and My Big, Fat “Send” Button


I was writing a complaining e-mail to my daughter about her college’s “e-bill” system and I wrote a couple smart-talking sentences about how it doesn’t give very good information, then clicked a very satisfying “send.” Then I realized I had actually sent my whiny e-mail calling their new system dumb to the college accounts instead of to my daughter.

But they don’t know who I am really, do they?  As far as they know, I’m just another parent full of complaints and a red-hot send button.  I am going to try to keep it that way, too.  Sorry, ———- College, for being a bit of a whiner.  I think it’s wonderful that you switched to a paperless billing system and I will try to keep a more positive outlook about little changes like that in the future.  And I will try to check who I am sending e-mails to more carefully as well.

  1. Guess they really do read those e-mails because they wrote me back a very strict reply in five minutes. Now who’s dumb?

  2. Ouch. I recently decided to correct a spelling error on my niece’s FB post, only to misspell the word myself. I was grateful for the ‘delete this post’ button.
