Re: Email is a Bad Place for Jokes
We had a tight-knit IT department at my last job and at that time, before security meant locking down the place like fort dix, everyone in IT had everyone else's passwords in the company (except for HRs - those were confidential).
So whenever we were getting a little punchy and needed to let off some steam, we may log into each other's system and may setup some autotext in Outlook to do something like, oh, I don't know, change the word "the" to the word "fart" every time the person typed it...or something juvenille like that.
You get the picutre. But we all sat in a "bull-pen" at the time, as we called it, so we made sure to stop the person from doing something stupid like not reading an email they composed before sending it.
A bit different from executing an emoji upon sending, but still on a third-grade level. My new coworkers aren't nearly as funny as the last bunch...I'd never try that here. You have to know your audience.
