I was at my desk this morning when I received this voice message from my boss:
Please check your e-mail for a link to confirm your existence. If you do not click on this link, we will assume you do not exist so it is imperative that you respond immediately.
A deep chill ran up my spine and I knew I had to act as quickly as possible. I turned to my computer and attempted to log on my e-mail through the company’s intranet.
Server not found.
Webmail must be down.
So I picked up the phone and dialed my boss. I heard a click as he picked up the phone.
“Yeah.” my boss answered.
“Webmail’s down again.” I said.
There was a long pause.
Then I heard my boss speak.
“Who IS this?” he said.
