Longer posts are on their way, believe me, I have a couple on my to-do list. But really quickly, I got the following email today from our HR organization.
Now remember, I've been working here for almost a full year, and have lived in the same place the entire time. However, I had a different address when I was an intern, and getting my HR-related documents (most notably, a health insurance card) to the right place has been problematic.
Subject: Address Change Notificaton
Memo: Address Change Request
RE: Change of address request
This memo is to inform you that your change of address request was updated in our system.
The following address is now in our records:
Effective Date: 10/07/2009 10:38:05 am
XXX East 12th Street
New York, NY 10003
If this address is incorrect please contact your local Human Capital Representative
I think there should be some kind of absurdity filter for these emails that says, 'Wait, it's June and we're just processing this request from October?'
