Gmail keeps coming out with cool additions: an “undo” button that lets you change your mind for a few seconds after sending an email; the drunk test, that makes you answer a couple of arithmetic problems before letting you send a stupid email at 2am.
I admit that every time I open my work email, I am in fear that I’ll have some email that a survey has gone badly or that a budget has disappeared or that I’ve insulted some international official (but the latter happens too often to really worry).
Can someone develop a gmail add-on that warns you whether you are likely to have bad news emails? Right after you log in, it plays a peaceful tune and says, Just Relax, There’s Some Bad News Coming, but You Can Handle It. Everything’s Going to Be Fine. Breathe Deeply.
