I just had a minor melt down trying to filter my emails. I maintain that I should not have to be a computer programmer to be able to work out how to filter emails from multiple people at the same domain as well as other completely different addresses that are all providing a similar service, i.e. ‘Travel’.
I don’t sign up to a hundred million websites for every aspect of my life for two reasons:
1. It causes me extreme mental trauma to try to remember my password each time I try to log in to “howtocookgnocchi.com” or whatever. Each site has varying security rules which they tell you when you sign up, but not when you try to log in three months later. I’m paranoid enough not to want to keep a file called “MY IDENTITY” on my computer.
Solution? Maybe I should keep a file called something slightly less obvious than “MY IDENTITY” on my computer.
2. I can’t deal with the email traffic. I find myself yelling “I DON’T CARE” at each incoming email then having a panic attack if I need to respond or react in any way.
Solution? A thousand labels filtered to skip the inbox! I’ll check it when I’m feeling stable again! HOORAY!
And there goes my day, tumblring about doing stuff instead of actually doing stuff.
Edit: I’m told this is a classic problem. Therefore, I think someone should FIX IT NOW.
