Is this a dig?


#1

Just received an email starting with:

“Dear Joe
Hope you are fine.”

Why just fine? Snarky fucker.


#2

I reckon they mean it in the “very attractive” sense and are about to ask you on a date


#3

Depends. Is your name Joe?


#4

hmm. good take, wait there a second…

reads rest of email

Well that’s disappointing.


#5

No offence but if I was reading this thread I probably would work that out without having to ask

I say ‘fine’ quite a lot in a cheery way to mean ‘it’s all good’.

I have noticed that not everyone uses it in the same way, and just thinks that I am passively-aggressively trying to avoid criticising.


#8

Wine can be fine. Weather can be fine. Art can be fine. Why not people?


#9

I thought they might be negging you.


#10

ITT: a fine whine


#11

If I knew someone called Joe any email would start “Hey Joe”

and then a line from the song.

Sadly, I don’t ever have need to email a Joe. Joseph on occasion, but no shortened version.

Even a Jo! But she’s a bit cool for me and would probably do me for sexual harassment or summat.


#12

Hey Joe, my brother is called Joe


#13

My sister lives in London too!
