Today’s blog posting was prompted by the fabulous headline in the WSJ this morning “Do These Jeans Make My Diaper Look Big?” In case you are wondering, the article is about the fashion trend of skinny jeans for toddlers – go figure.
So to keep things simple, the answer is YES to both questions.
Do These Jeans Make My Diaper Look Big? The answer is YES.
Do These Files Make My Email Look Big? The answer is YES.
Very similar to the idea of squeezing a large diaper clad child into a pair of skinny jeans, large files just don’t belong attached to emails. It looks uncomfortable, it is uncomfortable, and your IT manager just might throw a tantrum.
Whoever dreamed up skinny jeans as a fashion statement certainly didn’t have a diaper-clad child in mind. Similarly email wasn’t designed for large file attachments. As with many things in life – just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. This applies equally to diaper clad children wearing skinny jeans and large files attached to email.
