You’ve got mail!
One of my pet peeves is finding an email inbox filled with unread messages. My friend, Tim, knows that. After I boot up my computer, the first thing I do is check my emails. I use Gmail and it remains open until I go offline. Right now, I only have 3 unread messages. These messages are new and remains unread as a reminder that it needs to be acted on soon.
When I was in Baguio more than a year ago, I kept asking Tim to open my email account and check for new messages. So if I don’t reply to your email, that only means I am either really busy or I haven’t read it yet.
