Problem Solvers…ish #12: Inbox Overload

We have been TRYING to contact you by e-mail…but OH WAIT! You’re so swamped that you’re still working your way through your unread messages circa late Winter/early Spring. We feel ya. Stuff builds up FAST! It’s called inbox overload. What can we do to keep up? Let’s ask Seth and Lex!



Ugly e-mail buildup? You need an inbox overload remover…

These messages aren’t spam. Whether you’re at home or work, people send you messages because they have questions! Clarifications! Invitations! And lots of other ‘ations. Problem is, there’s only so many hours in a day, and you could spend a lifetime just prioritizing your way through the e-mail inbox overload! HELP! Maybe the Problem Solvers…ish have figured out a way to bibbity-bobbity-boo that inbox into shape! And then maybe you’ll RSVP about that VIP invite we got to the GoT end-of-season party with the cast. Whoops! That was months ago. Too bad! We had a blast.

What’s YOUR Problem?

Every week Seth Brown and Lex Friedman tackle a listener submitted problem. It could be any kind of issue—family, career, love, religion, political. Doesn’t matter! Seth and Lex are equally unqualified to address ANY of your troubles.

BUT, that doesn’t mean they won’t try. And it doesn’t mean they might not solve your problem by accident! Just Skype click the link in the sidebar to access our web-based voice-messaging system. Or, if you’re bashful, e-mail it to us at problems<at>

At your request, we will “Anonymize” your voice, making is less likely that your boss will recognize that it’s you complaining about her peculiar bathroom habits and tendency to stalk you on social media.

Problems dealt with on a “funniest-come, first-served basis.” Real Debbie-downer issues like death, IRS audits, and that sink hole swallowing up your carport? The may take a lonnnnng time for us to get around to. Just leave a voice message by clicking the picture in the side bar of the girl on the party line!
