I Saw the Sign

People's style of signing off on official mails got me thinking today (I am obviously very jobless...reason below...and so things like this get me thinking...if at all...) of how silly signing off can be. Most of the times when people sign off as "Cheers" I have this vision of them raising a toast. So it's even funnier when the body of the mail is full of scorn and it ends in "Cheers". That's like saying "Here's to your inefficiency! Bottoms up!"

It's even funnier when agencies sign off saying "Warm Regards". You get these scary visions of them giving you a hug! Ok to be fair I signed off that way too for years in an attempt to copy my client savvy boss till someone told me there's no such thing as "warm" regards. It's "best" regards. That of course is better than this colleague of mine, who in her trainee days was often told to reply on behalf of the boss...that is, till the boss discovered she'd been sending mails to clients saying "We will be reverting shortly. Love XYZ"!!

Anyway, been having a blast at work having quit my job last week. It's funny how everyone was curious to know where I was moving to when I quit my previous job. This time the response is "So are you getting married" or "Are you going to continue working?" It makes me feel a. Really old...like it's time for retirement or something and b. Totally incompetent that people cannot believe someone else would get conned into hiring me!! Hmph!

Made my last official out of town trip to...no points for guessing...Chennai. And without fail, yet once again, for the nth time, the office had sent a cab bearing my name prefixed with a "Mr."!For crying out loud! I've decided to sign off from now onwards giving them my name, sex and vital stats if need be!!

So getting back to office...been chilling out... reaching office at 10, leaving at 6 sharp and spending the hours in between listening to the radio and sending personal emails! Exit mode rocks!!! Today in particular I went to office in a chariot of flowers...like literally. Our neighbour's shrubbery has decided to shed on our side....to be more precise, on my car! So in a flower laden car I set out for office with petals flying to the left and leaves flying to the right, with petals streaming down the windshield when I braked and petals flying off when I used the wiper....and all was well till I saw the cows were eyeing my car rather longingly!!(I swear I heard a couple of them saying "foooooooooooooood") Hence now planning to go down and free my poor eve teased car off greener pastures...

Till next time.....signing off

nutty said...

you quit your job?!! What are you going to do now, since you're obviously not getting married? Or are you?!

hehehe ... just kidding!

Official email signatures - there was this joke in school that said - "What is the first thing that a PhD student does on receiving his doctorate?" .. "Changes his email signature to Dr. XYZ" !! heehee!

"Love, ABC" was hilarious tho!

nutty said...

oooh! oooh! oooh!

I was first! yaay!

Bhel Puri & Seekh Kabab said...

Congrats Mr.Zee.

Being a short-timer is great.

Do you find it hard to keep a straight face when you go to a meeting where they are discussing some big problem that is going to take many months and many long hours to solve? ;-)

Enjoy every minute of it

Warm regards
BPSK

Still searching said...

Someone actually signed off as "Love, XYZ"?!!! Wow! Well, you can do what they do here.. write nothing! Neither start the email with Dear, nor end with Regards! Just "XYZ: Blah Blah, ABC"... :)

And ofcourse this is THE best part of working in any company!! Hahaha!! I used to reach office by 11 and leave by 5! Haha! :) Enjoy, ofcourse it wont last long! :))

Anshul said...

arpana said...

Someone said...

Congratulations on quitting your job! You have no idea how jealous I am ...make the best of it Zee!! I don't know how you did it but I have always wanted to resign like this - come on a monday morning,log in, send a blank mail to your boss with just the subject saying "I resign" and walk out!!

ScRiBbLeR said...

So did u like enjoy Chennai's rain??
People are really very inquisitive..I understand that very well :)

CM-Chap said...

Hey Zee... So ur getting promoted..good..yah I mean quitting the current job... Your post on Signature reminds me of many ppl who write...
"Revert back ASAP"
They never realize "back" shouldn't be there... OMG..Chennai..hw was it.. I miss it.... 1 more month I hv to wait to land back

Zee said...

nutty...really?? hadn't heard of that one...hahahah!

BPSK...yes sir!!! suddenly meetings totally rock and people give me a look saying hey what are u doing here?

anshul....ur sign off made me laugh so loudly in office it's not funny! if i hadn't quit i would've been kicked out!

mahatma....2nd time....if u don't count the one i'd joined for 7 days!!

arpana...say say what u want!

someone...i've had visions of those all my life...but alas...this too was a formal sit down session saying "i would like to put in my papers"

scribbler....there weren't too much rains but the flight back was the worst ever!!!

Zee said...

Many many congratulations :) I hope you have the liberty of some time off before starting your next assignment(whatever that may be!) And I also hope you aren't joining analytics in a retail bank :D

Umm, have you considered that people like me who have a naturally low voice (that is se#y and hot as per me!) and a name that begins with 'Sri' in its official avtar, never stand a chance of being called 'Ms'. Even my credit card statements issued by the company I WORK for call me "Mr.Sri######'. SIGH!!

Mee
Just happy to be a woman?!
