What's wrong with this email I got at work today?

Think about it.

Reminds me very much of a rubber stamp Mom has for envelopes: "Let me know if you don't receive this."

Agreed, Rachel, but it actually took a while for me to realize the problem! Hithah, all business mail should be so stamped. :)

I was reminded of a verse from "It's a Long Way to Tipperary":

Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O',
Saying, "Should you not receive this, write and let me know,
"If I make mistakes in spelling, Molly dear," said he,
"Remember it's the pen that's bad; don't lay the blame on me!"
