Time to start out a new year of exciting top ten lists. January overall was a pretty slow month. Chad as usual took the lead, but not with any huge volume of email. Which was fine. I was too busy releasing a website for my employer to answer much email anyway. Chris, Al and Ron were up to their usual antics.
Rebecca was much lower than usual in volume, until you realize that she actually placed on the list TWICE. Once with her usual Rebaroni@aol.com address, but then also as firstname.lastname@example.org. Rebecca had set up this address specifically for the purpose of taunting one of my coworkers, but then rapidly shifted gears and began a practical joke on Chad instead. She pretended to be "Sam's new girlfriend" and began an email conversation with Chad, where she preceded to become more and more insane over the course of about a week. She succeeded in getting Chad very upset and worried about my well-being, to the point he was calling me every day to try to warn me. Being in on the joke, I didn't answer, but told Rebecca to finish it up. When Chad found out the truth he was very very mad at both Rebecca and myself. But in the process, Rebecca managed to get on the list with two addresses again.
