25 Email Etiquette Rules That Are Worthy of a Reminder

Email. It’s both a major convenience and a ceaseless distraction. But, regardless of how you feel about it at the present moment, one thing’s for sure—it’s an unavoidable necessity. “Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ve heard all of these a million times before,” you’re likely thinking.

Millennials are clueless about cellphone etiquette by Catey Hill @ Marketwatch.com

 I thought “Millennials are clueless about cellphone etiquette” was another article of a complaining etiquette expert about the bad behavior of the new generation. But this article mostly lists the facts: More than six in 10 cellphone users read text messages or emails at their most recent social gatherings.

“The speed with which information is communicated exceeds our capacity for reflection and judgment, and this does not make for more balanced and proper forms of expression. … We need, for example, to recover a certain sense of deliberateness and calm. This calls for time and the ability to be silent and to listen.”
