When the Administrative Staff Peaces Out, Punctuation Takes a Backseat
Here is a Last Day Email from an administrative staff member at a New York law firm who is leaving the law to work, client-side, for a bank (envious much, litigators?). And although the message itself is calm and subdued, the punctuation is unbelievably punishing. So much so, that it makes you wonder, "Hey, is this person f*cking with me?" That kind of ambiguity is, of course, a hallmark of a great, passive-aggressive, "up yours," kinda departure email.
Without further ado:
