Behold, The Worst Email Ever Received …

I’m back.

Trust me, I feel worse about it than you guys do.

I had an utterly amazing holiday…. utterly amazing … so I suppose karma wanted to make sure I was brought radically back down to earth by ensuring I got, as the post title says, the worst email I’ve ever received with – I kid you not – the worst first sentence ever written.

EVER. WRITTEN.

Cop a load of this …

Part of me feels I should be deeply offended to receive such a thing and then I remember this is a ‘direct marketing’ message and what it highlights is that as smart as computers are, they’re not as smart as everyone likes to think.

Just ask Microsoft.

For the record Rob, I’m not sure you can feel worse about being back than I do.

I hate to say it Dave, but Andy has a point.

Comment by Rob

No argument. “I’m back” is unquestionably the worst first sentence ever written.

Comment by John

Not sure it’s the worst. It definitely is the most upsetting.

Comment by andy@cynic

Thanks for making me feel so welcome.

Comment by Rob

Welcome home Robert. I trust you had a wonderful time and feel fully rested. I assume this means your future posts will be filled with greater amounts of venom than before. Something to look forward too.

Comment by Lee Hill

So, I read this long-ish copy and I still don’t know what they’re actually marketing to you or why they’ve elevated you to the status of average executive?

Comment by John

Welcome back Rob. Maybe you need another holiday after receiving that email, though I am confident you will be having one in a few days.
