Fun with Email

Readers in the IT or business fields may get a kick out of this email I received at work the other day. This excerpt comes from a discussion about why legal counsel has been involved in vendor negotiation before the project has been defined:
I don't see "gather functional requirements info". What I would be looking for at the next meeting is a one-pager of pros and cons regarding this question. While "saves $xxx" and "costs $yyy" are certainly on there, I think there is more to this question. Selling my car and riding a bike to work has lots of cost saving, likely a good purchase agreement could be reached with the help of my lawyer, and a new bike probably doesn't cost very much. Seems like there would be other factors in my decision to proceed, however. :-)

I'll have to have a talk with this guy about commuting by bicycle. He's over analyzing it a little! :-)

Other factors indeed!

* Increased metabolism
* More restful sleep
* Weight loss
* Improved cardio/pulmonary function
... and on and on ...

The guy is on the right track at least.

For me, it helps alleviate my carsickness. I'm so sick of cars.

Haha, that's hilarious. However, an important factor is missing: FUN!

Who knows, it might be fun for him to overanalyze ;)
