    I sent emails for 8 months to a person named Chris that started “Hi Chairs,” and they never noticed.

      Maybe they were just too polite to mention it.

        I think it’s a good instinct to assume the best of people but let me assure you there is nothing polite about Chairs.

        If it were me, I’d give a chuckle every time I saw it.

        I had a job for about a year, where among other things I was making the requests to our physical document storage supplier. They are amazingly incompetent. And one thing they did is, early on, they were calling me David, while my first name is Daniel. I didn’t say anything, wanting to note how long before they’d realize their mistake. They never did.

        Of course, my name is the signature of all my emails.

          People frequently misspell my name. Even though they’ve just had to correctly spell my name to get the email to me in the first place. Is it not even an uncommon name, it’s like being unable to spell Paul.

      I have a chain of email with mechanical engineers, subject: “welded butt plug”

      We’re talking about a butt welded plug. At this point I think nobody wants to be the one to change the subject.

        When I change a subject I always put (was: old subject)

        I would hope any who change that subject to follow that style

      I did the same - my bosses first name is Dean. There were many emails starting with “Hi Dead”

    I would just assume it was bad autocorrect.

    Hmm, I don’t do any intro if I remotely know the person. My emails look like this:

    Subject: General topic + call to action

    Brief introduction to problem, ideally one sentence. A call to action, like getting some info or whatever.

    Extra details if needed, which is pretty rare. Two to three sentences max.

    Thanks,
    my name
    relevant other info like title

    No intro, that’s available in the email header. Just don’t put in filler…

    I’m surprised people still write that in their work email.

    Writing a long letter to friends or people you want to work with is one thing, but for routine work email it should be short and to the point, nobody has time to read an essay about wells if your job doesn’t involve, well, wells.

    I wish it was just skipping filler. I send the office a 2 sentence email and they completely ignore the second sentence then send a snippy email in reply that was part of the 2nd sentence they just didn’t bother to read…
