Professionals who don’t end every email with a signature block that includes their contact information should be relegated to working retail.

Strong feelings on that one OP.

This really doesn't bother me 95% of the time. But it is nice.

That 5% is usually when they aren't responding to your emails and they are the bottleneck.

Relegated to retail? Is it supposing that in retail there’s no cushy email account to see letters after one’s name and act all corporatese saying things like deep dive, moving the needle, synergy?

Manager OP,

Plus, all the text and image is not mobile efficient.

Those with text to speech software for sight impairment waste a lot of their working hours listening to useless info they don't need.

Also working in retail is the backbone of America, Manager OP, and if it's so terrible to be the place that you would relegate undesirables to, what are you doing to change that?

Got all my fightin’ hackles up. Whew.

Don’t start with Hey. What if the signature was already below in the email thread? Do you have to keep putting the signature over and over again? Takes up too much space and adds more time when scrolling down the email thread for needed info. Especially having to hurdle through the whole alphabet after the name, then another hurdle with titles, industry, phone numbers, social media accounts, and other tag lines jumbled in there...I mean you really want to see all that over and over again?

OP,

What if I can’t easily send my fancy signature block on mobile?

I've worked with a client for over 10 years and still don't have their direct number.

And that doesn’t seem suspicious to you?? Hahaha

Hey.

It’s just a wall of text. I don’t use it internally.

It’s a single big logo.

Sometimes the signature doesn't come through if they respond to the email through their phone and don't have a signature on their phone app, or whatever.

Noticing managers take credit for my research. Is this normal? One even copied my email verbatim into a new email to the partner and said this is what 'I' came up with. He did copy me on it though.
