In a viral video, Matt M. (@itsmattslaw) revealed a secret in the corporate world– the difference between low and high-priority emails.

“Now I thought I’ve seen every passive-aggressive move you can do in corporate,” he said. “Then I found out there is actually a person, when they respond to emails, will change the priority level to low. Not because the email subject matter is a low priority. It’s because the person is a low priority,” he said.

Matt is the Head of Community for Lawtrades, a company that matches companies with legal talent. His TikTok page shares law-related memes, jokes, and skits with his followers.

The video, which now has over 385,700 views, sparked discussion as users weighed in on the newfound information.

“Huh – not seen that one. Ouch,” one user said. 

“This is gonna be my new hobby,” another commented.

“Finally an excellent work tip on TikTok,” a third user said.

“Hot take. Low priority=high priority bc both add a mark in your inbox and are more noticeable. Sorta relevant and true,” another user shared.

In response to a user confused by the video, Matt explained: “You can change an email to say it’s not important. Someone does that to say that the person getting the email isn’t important.”

The Daily Dot reached out to Matt via TikTok comment, Instagram message, and email.
