    Someone did the math already:

    Assuming a 12 hour day, which seems like the kind of hours someone receiving 1000 emails would put in, there are roughly 83 emails per hour. Meredith is receiving a whopping 1.38 emails per minute.
    Obviously to reply to 1000 emails, she has to respond with an email in less than a minute. Your eyes cannot leave the phone screen. Nope, not possible.

    1000 emails... Laugh1 Laughing3

    No wonder Apple is making them irrelevant.

    She's such a doll though. What a cutie.

    She's too busy typing on her BB 12 hours a day to go out on dates though.

    But do you hate them?

    Speaking of which, I've just remembered my intense hatred toward those Disneyland/world commercials. I've got 4 kids and never took any of them -- too ^*&^!#$ expensive. Of course the ads make you feel like the worst parent in the world if you have not taken your kids there.

    I get choked up when I see those and feel that way. My boys are 18 and 19 now but they might still appreciate going. Hoping to load up the RV and head down this winter.

    I drove down to Florida to see Disney World back in 2003. Nothing special. My best memory is getting a turkey leg.

    Yeah. What I can tell you is that the "Where's the Beef?" ad is the best ever.

    Worst ads IMO are those stupid Ottawa Job Shop ads. Especially that one with the former nurse taking the blood pressure of her boss.

    I kinda like the latest one with the surfer dude asking if there are any openings for rockstars. The woman tells him to stop calling her "dude" and he says "sorry, bro". Don't know what I find that funny, but I do.

    Looks like we won't have to hear this guy anymore:

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/alarmforce-s-ousted-ceo-sues-company-for-11-3m-1.1868026?cmp=rss

    Joel Matlin, who was at the home security company's helm since its inception in 1988 and often the voice and face of AlarmForce in ad campaigns, claims he was dismissed without cause or notice, which goes against the terms of his contract.

    He's also asking for punitive and aggravated damages because of the way the firing was handled.

    "The bad faith manner of termination above has caused Joel to suffer additional mental distress, damage to his reputation, and aggravated damages beyond his contractual damages for wrongful dismissal," the statement of claim says.

    The new commercials are the exact same script as the one he used with a different voice. What a bunch of amateurs.

    My most hated commercials are the ones you see on billboards, print, tv, radio, sponsorships, on clothing and vehicles. Otherwise I'm pretty good with them :D

    I think The Clutcher would agree, when it comes to most-loved commercials, "Where's the Beef?" is the gold standard.
