I’m obsessed with checking my email. I get up in the morning and check my email. Then 5 minutes later, I check my email again. It will continue like that throughout the day. I must check it more than 100 times.
What the heck am I expecting to find in my inbox? Maybe I’m looking for an email offering me an incredible financial opportunity…wait, I get that email almost everyday. That mustn’t be it. Maybe I’m looking for help getting my website to the top of the search engines. No, I get that email about three times a day.
Just because I spend so much time poking around my inbox doesn’t mean that I do anything productive while I’m there. I haven’t made any effort of organize it. On average I have about 205 emails in my box at a time. Some have been read, but most haven’t. Deleting, reading and answering emails isn’t what I want to do. I just want to see what’s there.
While writing this post I checked my email about 5 times. I even checked my email in new tabs so I have three tabs open with my email on them. Imagine how much I would be checking my email if I joined the rest of society and actually bought a smart phone. I feel like I should join Emails Anonymous.
Hi, I’m Lovelyn and I’m an obsessive email checker.
I don’t really need anything like that. I can stop any time.
