Sometimes I feel like I'm in notification hell. 

I don't receive the notifications that I want to see. 

And I do receive ones that I can't seem to figure out how to turn off... or where they even come from. 

When my husband and I are working together from home, our living room table is littered with two laptops, two smartphones, and a tablet. 

Suddenly, something would buzz or ding. 

We both look up and around. No idea which device or app it was. 

We'd try to regain our concentration only to be interrupted again in about 10 minutes. 

This shouldn't be this hard to control. But somehow I also feel lazy about it. Do I really have to sit down now for 30 minutes and go through all notification settings on all my devices? 

Actually, yeah, I should. I should solve this problem once and for all. 

But what about the ones that I don't get? I want to receive notifications from Slack for one particular workspace and all groups in it. Why don't I? The settings seem to be correct. What am I doing wrong? 

Stupid Slack ... making me feel all dumb for not being able to figure this out. 

Such first world problems ...
