Signatures You Won’t See In Customer-Facing Emails

Dagnabbit, there’s just no room for humour when it comes to email signatures when you send stuff to a customer. Unless there is, and I’m just a humourless person. Ah. I see.

Still, this is a blog that represents my personal opinion, so I get a bit of latitude and I can post ’em here.

Here’s the shortlist of taglines I’d love to use in my .sig, but just can’t quite bring myself to do so:

  • Lonely? Buy me, I’m cheap!

  • Written on my PS3 running Linux *with a joypad*. This message is not pre-rendered.

  • Support Incident moving too slowly? My Paypal account is here.

  • Caution: Author may contain traces of nuts.

    Ah, I’m a man of extremes.

    I get a doctor responding to the Kerberos post, and a drug spammer responding to this one.

    I have a new hobby at work, when an email comes to me with a bunch of people on it, I copy the signature of the person below me but replace their information with mine. One of our DBAs’s signatures is in pink. I felt *funny* copying her’s. Another person only signs with the first initial of his first name, so I signed that time with B. I might get to reply 4 or 5 times in an email thread and have different signatures each time, mirroring the person above me.

    Yes, I have too much free time on my hands…
