If someone doesn't respond to your email in a day, re-forward the same email to them with the message "Did you see my email from yesterday?," and cc as many important people as you can. actually that's a dick move, don't do that.

cr but i've had a job where if you did what i suggested above, the psycho boss would walk down to the person's office and say "why didn't you respond to this person's email? do you have too much work right now?"

...she'd also say it loudly enough that all the surrounding offices could hear it. thank god i got the fuck out of that job.

If someone is being a bitch I deescalate the greeting.

E.g.someone starts with:

Hi Mig, please tell me x bitch bitch bitch...

I'll respond with no greeting

this is passive aggressive as fuck and they're going to either a) show you the door soon, or b) if you have indispensable skills and they can't afford to get rid of you, they'll make you an of counsel and treat you like pure shit.

option b) happened to a maladjusted friend of mine who would yell back at partners when they yelled at him. he's a depressed unemployed alcoholic now.

A bunch of partners at a V5 somehow got involved in a firm-wide email "reply all" of inside jokes, back handed compliments and general douchebaggery. It was so ridiculously obnoxious. A 40 year old back office lady dropped the "please remove me from this distribution list" email and it was one of the funniest things I've ever seen in this sad, depraved profession.

Ignore whatever question is asked and respond with your own question. Example:

Q: "Can we please have a call on this tomorrow? I think we need to resolve issue X."

A: "What are your thoughts on issue Y?"
