In order of priority

When someone sends an email at work where there are a number of recipients, I like to see where I am on the list. Did they type my name in first or am I last? Did I come to mind before the boss or before a certain co-worker? Where do you stack up in group emails? First person that comes to mind or the after thought?

Oh, I take it personally. So you better be doing it alphabetically, or that grudge is held.

I do mine alphabetical, for the exact reason that people like you exist and I don’t want anyone to be upset if their name comes last. I’m glad to know my reasoning is justified!

You sound like a shallow and vain person.

It’s meaningless

And a lot of people (me included) randomize the recipient order for precisely this reason. Now go play outside :)

I used to work under a senior property manager ,who is from Eastern Europe, actually typed out who she personally like first and the ones she can less for are last. I thought it was funny.

That's so important.

Well at least you're contemplating on something important. I usually just spend my thought processes on unravelling the mysteries of the universe, and other dimensional realms of existence.
