A few days ago, I received an email from a PR company asking me if I could attend some horror event at Scape in conjunction with Halloween.

I can't attend the event, no thanks to the huge load of papers I need to submit this month, but not wanting to be rude, I replied saying that I could not make it but guess what, the email bounced back.
|first bounce back email that i received, note the "mailbox is full"|
At least I tried, right? So I conveniently forgot about the invitation and went back to my daily life, until I receive the second email asking about my reply.
|received this email today|
Since she has the heart to email again, and because I thought it would be a good work etiquette to clear your work inbox, I thought I'd be kind and reply her again. Only to receive the same thing back:

I don't know about you guys, but I think when you're out to engage bloggers or clients for your company, and if you're looking for the reply, I'm sure the least that you can do is to keep your inbox tidy right? Or at least leave some free space so you're able to receive email replies.
I mean how lah if I want to attend your event and I can't reach you through email? There's a phone number in the contact details but when you're out trying to engage people shouldn't you be more proactive in a way? I don't know. What do you think?
