7 email memes, with kind regards

by Jul 5, 2021

Sending emails doesn’t come easy to many people. They’re a weird form of communication, more formal and stilted than the way we actually speak to our co-workers.  

The way we communicate with the people with whom we work has changed dramatically since more of us spend our workdays at home. Gone are the days where you can just wander up to your colleague’s desk and ask a quick question. We rely on textual communication – like emails and Teams or Slack messages – much more than we used to.

Whether you like it or not, emails aren’t going anywhere soon. And with the pandemic causing every business’s second cousin’s friend to reach out to their entire mailing list, chances are the emails will continue to pile up.

Here are 7 memes to get you through this tough time, perfect for any occasion.


When you’ve got to be harsh but you’re scared of conflict


When you actually want to email because it saves you time


When you’ve had enough


When you want to say what you really mean


When you’re an overthinker


When you just can’t take any more


When you’re me, making this blog instead of replying to emails
