I Think emails are weird along with the etiquette that goes with it. I mean, it’s not like texting or instant messaging. You know like “ayy bb wanna go out 2nite” “mm i have too much homework :(” “Whatever, I never loved you anyway” “well, I’m pregnant” there is no limit to how informal you could be but when people use email as a medium to contact me I Feel the need to have more Discretion because that’s how I see emails Electronic mail, and you wouldn’t put LOL’s and emoticons in mail Lmao, here’s your cheque. I’m Canadian, so I spell it that way for $1,200 🙂 # makeitrain on one hand. I feel the need to sound professional Especially if it’s business related, but on the other I don’t want to sound boring and uninterested in the topic So when you eliminate text lingo and emoticons you’re left with a default english language or whatever you speak and proper your punctuation but if you’re like me I like to Express emotion into my words especially if it’s not in person or on the phone because I hate when people Misconstrue The tone of my messages, so for me when I write an email. What ends up happening is something like this Hey Dom, I’m just wondering if you’re free this week to set up a conference meeting with everyone. thanks! You can do this hey yeah whoops Hello, Christine. No that sounds like I’m welcoming her to my lair HELLO CHRISTINE!. Nope Heyyyyyyyyy Well she used an exclamation mark I guess I will too Hey!
