Perhaps I’m just easily amused at the moment, but I just discovered something laughable and of minimal use. There are people on this planet who put the latest weather forecast in the signature of their emails!
An email this morning had a summary of the Bureau of Meteorology’s 4:50am forecast for Melbourne, and an update on the dam levels in Melbourne. The person in question doesn’t work for the weather bureau or any water authority, and if they’re sane, I doubt that they send themselves emails constantly throughout the day.
I hope that the signature is automated, because I would hate to think that they’re manually copying this data in to each email…although I would then have to wonder why anybody would write a script to put such data in the signature of an email.
Does anybody want to explain this to me? Or do you find it peculiar as well?
