Yesterday I sent an email minus its attachment. Today I received a request for a writing look over (one step down from a critique) minus its file, and not for the first time I wondered if there was a word for this. So I googled and thanks to the good folks at Urban Dictionary ( www.urbandictionary.com ) I have the following candidates:
Forattachment: The act of forgetting to attach a file to an email.
Forgetfileness: The act of forgetting to attach a file to an email.
Attachment Disorder: Suffered by people who forget to attach files to emails
Attachmentally Challenged: A politically correct way to say attachment disorder
Attachless: Used to describe an email minus its attachments
Attachmiss: Verb to describe the act of failure to attach.
I'm sure if I kept looking I'd find a million different terms but my current favourite is attachment disorder. What's yours?
