So I followed up with "Anne," the alternate person listed in the auto-reply, and received assurances from her that my original message would reach my friend. Anne's message closed with the following line:
She responds within a day or so when I email her so I'm sure you'll hear from her shortly. If not, holler back ("cuz I ain't no holler back girl").I have no idea who Anne is. I've never communicated with her before.
So my response was, of course:
Holla, Anne. Holla.
