I’m not going to go into the specifics (too scary), but there’s an infinite list of things humans are both irrationally and rationally afraid of. Of course, not all of these things are universal—surgeons don’t seem to mind blood, while some people pass out at the mere sight of it. But for the most part, we can at least empathize with another person’s fears.
However, there are a few things that are so terrifying, no human is immune. And at the very top of the list is an email from your boss with the subject line: “Slack me when you get in.” Because…WTF does it mean? Why are they being so vague? Why didn’t they say, “Slack me when you get in (it’s not bad)”?? At the root of every fear is the unknown, and this particular fear is a black hole of anxiety.
