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 babe wanna go out 2night? (Hey babe, wanna go out tonight?)
Mmm... I have 2 much hmwk (Sad face). (Mmm... I have too much homework.)
Wuheva. I neva luvd u neway. (Whatever. I never loved you anyway.)
Well im pregnant. (Well, I'm pregnant.)
There is no limit to how informal you could be.
But when people use email as 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 "lols," and emoticons in mail.
Lmao here's your cheque!
( I'm Canadian so I spell it that way.)
For twelve hundred dollars.

On one hand, I feel the need to sound professional especially if it's business related, but the other I don't want to sound boring and uninterested in the topic.
So when you eliminate text lingo and the emoticons, you are left with the default English language.
Or whatever you speak, and a proper punctuation.
But if you are like me, I like to express emotion into my words especially if it's not in person or on the phone because I hate it 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!
"Just wondering if you're free this week to set up a conference meeting with everyone."
You can do this!
Hey! Um..oops.
"Hello Christine," umm..no, that sounds like I'm welcoming her to my lair.
Hello Christine!
No no no…
Well she used an exclamation mark, I guess I will too.
Good..good..that's good.
Yeah I'm free!
No no no…
I just used an exclamation... I don't want to sound like I'm too loud.
"Yes, I am free."
No... I sound like I'm just an escaped prison with a vengeance.
Yeah, I'm free!"
Just let me know what time.
Just let me know what time?
Just let me know what time!!!!
(One hour later)
Hey! Christine.
A day within this fortnight, fits within my schedule!
See you soon.
Best wishes to you and your loved ones,
Most Sincerely,
That's perfect.



超有同感!寫 email 總是怕被誤會語氣不對...(How to write a professional E-mail?)
