I love a good e-mail subject line. This is especially the case if it applies to fun content within the e-mail itself, but it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes it’s just a nice start to an unrelated conversation.
Specifically, I’m talking about suggestive subject lines. Not to limit this to one gender, but sorry guys, this only applies to e-mails from women, even if my relationship with said females are completely platonic. You might be sending me an e-mail about a fundraising technique you heard about at work, but if you title the e-mail “Just got out of the shower…” you KNOW I’m going to read that e-mail right away.
Sometimes I even change e-mail subject lines of ongoing conversations so that I get that little burst of adrenaline when they appear in my inbox. I’ve been known the change the subject line to “thongs,” “cleavage,” and “yoga pants,” among others. The best part is that even though I’m the one that changed the line, when I see the response, I get just as excited as if the recipient was the originator of the new subject.
Do any of you do anything like this? What are your quirky e-mail habits?
