We can’t create this email testing infrastructure you talk about….we will scare off all of IT with that request.
I have none. Just go out and execute and stop worrying what others are saying.
I know we have a delivery issue….I just know it. My Aunt Mary got her email, but it got there 6 hours late.
The more time you spend thinking of excuses on why you are not testing could be spent thinking of one test to execute
<Telephone rings> 6:04 a.m.
Them: Dude…its 6:05 a.m. and I have not gotten the email.
Me: What email?
Them: I normally get an email from you everyday at 6:04 a.m.
Me: Did you check your spam folder?
Me: Check it.
Them: Nope. Nothing. Dude WTF..its now 6:06 and I still have not gotten anything.
Me: Calm down. It could be internet traffic or some sort of ISP issue.
Them: Internet traffic..what the hell? Its 6 am..who the hell is on the Internet?
Me: Well you are.
Them: Dude..I just sent an email to myself and it got here in like 2 seconds. Something is wrong.
Me: It will get there..trust me..maybe in 30 minutes.
Them: 30 minutes..I can’t wait that long…people are going to go crazy.
Me: You mean they are going to set themselves on fire?
Them: They are going sh&t.
Me: No they won’t. Go back to sleep….the email will get there.
Them: I can’t sleep. The internet is broken. Email is broken and you need to fix it.
and on and on and on and on…………
Ever have one of those delivery days where no one gets it?
Everyone loves the word “blast” these days. So on this Friday, lets have some fun. If I have you the letters B-L-A-S-T, how many words can you make with it. I will start off with a couple and you play along as well.
Happy Blaster Day.
I heard recently that email marketing is filled with a bunch idiots who can’t send relevant email and that we are all breaking the law. Thanks goodness my Engulish dagree can payuff in the long run when I wants to get into mortguge backed up securities.
