For anyone who thinks celebrities are exempt from technological and organizational challenges… think again. Chris Pratt has just proven that he really is one of us when he went to Instagram to share his email inbox, which for all OCD fans, was probably super worthy and trigger.
” Hi guys. Okay, so, uh, my son was playing on my phone yesterday, and he was breathless when he saw how many unread emails I have. It’s a lot. It’s a lot, “admitted the Guardians of the Galaxy star in his story. He then presented evidence (show us the receipts!) And he really wasn’t kidding – 35,000 unread emails craved his attention.

To put the fans at ease, Pratt, whose wife Katherine Schwarzenegger is expecting their first child together, said there was a reason for his out of control inbox. “You see, what I do is I sign up for everything. I sign up for everything. I am one of those idiots who will take, for example, an IQ test and who will say to me: “Do you want to take an IQ test?” Give me your email. “And then I do it and then, you know, which proves that my IQ is around 7 and I just get spam from everyone and I don’t delete it. Honestly, Chris … the same.
But if you thought this is where the hilarious story line ended, think again. Pratt, acknowledging that there were in fact important emails mixed with IQ tests, revealed that he had set himself the goal of opening 1,000 emails each day. But although his intentions are good, the star (almost immediately) made a rookie mistake.
And by mistake of a beginner, we mean that he accidentally deleted 51,000 messages.

His reaction in real time, shared with his story, was (unsurprisingly) hilarious and entirely similar to Pratt. “OK OK. I try not to panic. I think I just tried something to delete everything that is not read and he just deleted them. And now I say to myself, “Oh no. I had to read them. I don’t know where they went. So, and now my battery is dying. I think I have them all. He also added, “If I owe you an email, you may want to follow up on it.” Maybe resend the email, then I’ll read it because it may have just been deleted. Yes, 51,000 messages are in the trash. Oh fuck. “
The following stories showed that his number of inboxes was steadily decreasing, with Pratt commenting in the background: “All my emails. Oh my God. It could be a nightmare. Presumably similar to the reaction felt by anyone who accidentally closed more than 12 Internet tabs at a time, Pratt apparently accepted his mistake, joking that it was his “new beginning”.
Administrative assistants and technicians, prepare these CVs, as Pratt may be looking for an assistant.
