Man Becomes Co-worker Who Cried High Priority Email

email-hippoTULSA, OK—Gary Ruffles, 35, is slowly becoming known as “The Co-worker Who Cried High Priority Email” at the small marketing firm in which he works.

“Listen, all 25+ co-workers at the firm know and like Gary. So why does he insist on pissing us off by sending every email as “high priority”. We don’t want to hate him, but I mean, do we have a choice anymore?”

Not a big deal, but let me know. Thanks.

Warm Regards,
