It's such a piddly thing, I know, but...

...I really hate it when students send emails with an attachment but no message. Is it too much effort to write "Here's my lab report!" or "Attached is my proposal. Thanks."? Sometimes I stare at the blank screen for a minute waiting for a message to appear thinking the server is just slow in loading it until I realize it really is completely blank. Have we truly become that lazy?

And it seems they are only getting lazier each year. My pet peeve is that students send me emails without complete sentences or sentence structure, i.e. no capitalized first words, no punctuation, and internet abbreviations/terminology (btw, thankx, etc.).
