The other day, someone in my office was slightly offended that I didn't call her back. She had left a message on my cell phone to alert me to a huge traffic jam on 287 since she knew I was headed to Fort Worth. I appreciated the call, but she wanted to know why I didn't call her back.
I told her it was the type of phone call that didn't require a return call. What was I supposed to say? "Got your message. Thanks." Yeah, that would have been polite but isn't that a waste of time?
Which gave rise to the above question today on a computer/life productivity site called LifeHacker. If you ask a question via email and get a response, do you type a one word email of "thanks" and hit reply? Unless someone has gone to a heck of a lot of trouble to find an answer for me, I don't. And I know I'm a good person. My therapist tells me so.
