Addicted to E-mail

According to a NY Daily News article this morning, New Yorkers check their e-mail more than anyone else! And to that I say, "Ain't that the truth!" I know for sure that I am an e-mail addict. I don't even know how many times I check it throughout the day. At work, I keep my two personal and my work accounts open and refresh 10,000 times a day. Yahoo and Entourage both let me know when a new message comes in, but sometimes I can't wait for the notification and refresh anyway. If I'm bored/have nothing better to do, I go over and check things out. At home I just leave my computer on to pop over and see if anything new came in.

See the thing is I love mail. Opening my mailbox at home and getting snail mail is like Christmas to me. I even check that every time I come in or leave the building (well hellooo, what if the mailman hadn't arrived yet when I first checked it?!). But since no one sends letters anymore unless they're after your money, it's all about the e-mails.

So in conclusion, yes I check my e-mail many times a day. Which is exactly why I cannot, for my own sanity and safety, ever get a Sidekick, Blackberry or any other portable e-mail checker. I already have enough problems crossing the street while texting.


  1. Hehehe, like me with my new phone. I have my aol email and work email at the tip of my fingers.

    Oh God maybe I've created a Monster!!!!

    By the way check your email :)

  2. Hahaha too funny! I know exactly what you mean. I love it that little message that pops up on Outlook when there is unread mail. We are all totally OCD prone!!


Say word.
