Gene spent a lot of last night moving the CementHorizon email over to Gmail. This is a good move for a lot of reasons, but I admit it caused some problems in our house this morning.
Gene: So how are you doing with the email split?
Gene: Because your old email is at the old site, but the new email is coming in through Gmail?
Me: Oh…that’s why I’m not getting any email.
Gene: This was all in the instructions I sent out.
Me: …Yeah…I read those.
Gene: Uh huh.
Me: Hey, I can’t log in to the new email!
Gene: You have to use the password I sent in the instructions.
Gene: You didn’t read them at all, did you?
Me: I did, I did! And then I…accidentally deleted them.
Gene: Well, you can just —
Me: And purged my trash.
Gene: [Speechless for a minute.] Why?
Me: To make the move easier for you?
Gene: This is a microcosm of what I can expect from everyone, isn’t it.
Me: [hangs head]
