Importance: High

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

It's a quiet day.

Too quiet - you think to yourself.

Then it happens….

A message arrives in your Inbox, but not just any message.

This message is adorned with the Red Exclamation of Importance!

You can feel the adrenaline in your fingers as they snap the mouse into position. A breathless moment during the double-click, and the message is now in front of your eyes:

Hi everyone! Just a little reminder to get those TPS status reports in by next week. Also, we've change the passcode for next month's conference call – it is now 6661212.
Thanks! :)

Oh. It's from that person. Every mail that person sends carries the Red Exclamation of Importance.

Have you ever wondered what that person would do in the event of a real emergency?
