I guess a vent/whine/complain post.

So the latest trend I have noticed is where I send an email to someone asking one or two questions. Not a ton of questions. Two questions, at most. And then they respond in a manner that answers either one or none. Never all of them. And never the most important one. So then I have to either feel like a pest and send another email or try and wing it and maybe mess everything up.

Bonus points for when you send that follow-up email with the question again and they still don’t answer the question in their reply. Sometimes it drags on until I feel like I’m not reality-based - did I imagine that I wrote the question or??? How do you even write replies to question-based emails without answering the question? It’s kind of impressive.

Anyone else experience this? Or notice other annoying ‘things that should not thing’?
