So I was typing this long and drawn out email to my father the other day. It was basically a quick update of what’s going on in my house-hold. You know the routine. You talk about what we’re up to, how work is going, and bla bla bla. It was probably around four paragraphs long when I was finished. Then came the bad part. I accidentally sent it to a number of email addresses. Why, you may ask? Because I was responding to a joke email my father had sent me and it was also one he sent to a whole slew of acquaintances. I guess I shouldn’t have hit REPLY ALL. That’s never a good feeling. None of us want to spill our guts to a large crowd. Ah, the joys of online email accounts. I will admit that they’re a great deal more convenient and quick than tangible letters are, but then again, this would have never happened with a paper letter. There’s still something to be said about the old-school method.
How long have you used online email accounts? Now, can you imagine how many emails you’ve sent regarding business and pleasure over the years? It’s probably more than you can fathom. This has certainly become a part of our daily regimens. It’s difficult to imagine life without them at this point. Even though we all got along fine for many years prior. I can still recall the very first time I got an email account. It was with my Internet service, so it was basically one of the ones that you pay for. It was fairly decent as far as online email accounts go. However, there are some decent free ones out there these days that would blow my old paid service out of the water.
What’s your current online email account? Are you fully satisfied with this service, or do you wish it had more space to send pictures, files, etc.? Well, fortunately there are many other email accounts to pick and choose from if you aren’t happy. One thing is for certain, you need a reliable one to get along in the cyber-age of chaos and convenience.
