About Me

Hi, my name is Randy Hill and I am just one of thousands of people around the world, tired and frustrated with the lack of consideration that is displayed by a growing "demographic" that I call, "the great unwashed and ill-mannered." People who can't seem to get outside their little world long enough to see the stress that they create on the rest of the population.

I've created this blog and online store as an outlet for this pent-up frustration...and also to have a little devious fun while I'm at it!

Have fun and keep it down while you're in here. Thanks.

E-mail etiquette: 15 essential things you need to know

By Randy | September 24, 2007

About 171 billion e-mails are sent each day according to a 2006 study! This amounts to nearly 2 million e-mails sent every second, and although 70 per cent of them are spam and viruses, about 1.1 billion of us send legitimate e-mails. But that doesn’t mean we’re always sending appropriate e-mails. In fact, because e-mail is so one-sided, your witty quip may be perceived as snotty by its recipient, your attempt at humor distasteful. This is because while e-mail excels at speed and efficiency, it lacks personality. There are no facial cues, no innuendos and no clues given by tone of voice that let a reader in on the message’s intended meaning. The result can be disastrous! A professional e-mail that sounds too personal, a familiar one that’s too stiff or, worst of all, a flamer.

In the 21st century, e-mail is essential. So, then, is learning the proper e-mail etiquette so that your e-mails get your message across, and nothing more.
