Reply All vs Reply Rant

2 months ago

Sorry, this is a little outside of my usual posting, but its getting under my skin today. Figured I'd rant a little about it and give you guys an opportunity to vent also.

During the day, I work in an insurance office selling car insurance. We are getting to be pretty large and we have a call center with about 50 employees in it. Every so often someone will send an email out to everything informing them of an update (like a password change or slight policy revision). Today for an example, we received an email stating that we need to be more vigilant in confirming certain discounts are given properly and the manager asked that we reply to the email to let him know we read it and understood it. No big deal. Read it, click reply and then tell them you read it and send.

Well, as of right now, I have received over 40 emails of people saying "read and understood" because people used the reply all vs the reply button. This drives me crazy since i get on average 2-300 emails that have absolutely nothing to do with me. I spend more time deleting them than reading them.



I would love to hear some of your stories in the comments.

Reply All, my number one pet peeve: "Thanks!" Am I right? Upvote me! 😂

I am Groot! :D

I have seen some very hysterical responses (and reply chains) on accidental reply-alls!

care to share any?

It's usually the standard person Replying All, telling the original person not to use Reply-All, followed by multiple other people sending the same message to the other people who Replied All ... until eventually a very senior person tells everyone to act like adults and the chain dies :)
