For a paying service like my bank I prefer chatbots.
For a free service I would rather email the person, largely for their own sake. In that way they can gather information in their own time and not be a slave to the instant messenger hell of the chatbot universe.

Because - if I worked for somebody else these days - I'd be damn tempted: book the 23rd, 2nd, and 3rd as holiday, and you got a 14 day break (since every company I've worked for shut down until the new year). 21st Dec through to the 6th Jan inclusive - that's a damn good break if you can swing it!
So how many of you are doing that?

Most of my files are named in that fashion, so when I open a folder, I see the content in chronological order.
