So, of all of the amusing lad-ioms, this is the one that tends to baffle me the most. What exactly is the point of beginning an email with "I am in receipt of your mail"/"I am receive your message"/"Sequel to your letter" or whatever? Surely the simple fact that they are, you know, replying is enough of an indication that they actually received it (especially when all the previous emails are included).

Does anyone know where this bit of redundancy originated? Is this a common way of beginning emails in Western Africa, or something some lads thought sounded professional and just caught on?

Moved here to General Chat. I think it's more appropriate. - crashhoot

It's remarkable only in they don't follow with, "and the contents are well understood." Wink

Lakeside took the words right out of my mouth. And it is often that the lads doesn't just misunderstand one or two sentences but the whole letter can be an epic misunderstanding.

The phrase "the content was/has been well understood/noted" has often needed slapping down.

Mal:

Quote:
So - "the content [of my email] is well read, understood and noted" - my aching backside it's any of those; you ignored both my requests.


Cammy:

Quote:
You didn't read my email at all. "The contents are well understood" - my sleek little ass they are!
