For my convenience

Here's a great moment in technology. I just got an email that was sent to the whole faculty. It begins, "For your convenience, I have attached a PDF file of this email."

I admit that I couldn't resist opening the file to confirm that statement. Yup: it's a PDF of the same formatting and text of the email. Perhaps next time, we could also receive an image file of the PDF of the email.

The pdf probably prints better... but it is funny!

That's a good point, but there was nothing fancy about the layout of this email--no images or anything--so printing the text would have worked just fine. I would certainly understand the PDF attachment in some circumstances.
