Keyboard Warriors

Emails/texts can be very misconstrued as can anything in written form. If you don’t know whether your currently embroiled in a digital showdown here are some surefire signs you being told off….

  • Instead of starting with ‘To’ or ‘Dear’ the email will just start with your name. To Sarah, fine. Dear Sarah, Fine. If it just says Sarah alone as the beginning of the text then I know i’m in the dog house.
  • ‘With all due respect’. Can I just point out the sender does not think any respect is due. They are basically writing “Your clearly an idiot this is what should be happening you blatant imbecile!!!!!”
  • ‘I’m sorry but’…. They aren’t sorry! Not at all! Even in the slightest!
  • Instead of ‘Kind Regards’ its just ‘Regards.’ The most passive aggressive way of signing off an email in my opinion unless of course they always use just ‘Regards’ in which case they’ve never like you!
  • When a person of authority or influence is CC’d but hasn’t been throughout the entire email thread they’re showing others just how irrelevant your point of view is and how right they are! They may have even been brought in to diffuse the situation. Please know because it was them that brought the 3rd wheel into the conversation they will have already thought about and planned who they are bringing in with the confidence that their side will be taken. What use is bringing an impartial 3rd party into the conversation?!
  • The worst of all is when someone who isn’t knowingly CC’d replies to the thread! This means they were BCC’d (Blind CCD), so the person didn’t even want you know that they had added others to the conversation! The main keyboard warrior betrayal!

If any of the above is happening the changes are the digital showdown is going off!!!!!

If anyone else has any Keyboard warrior examples feel free to comment 🙂 Happy typing xx

I'm 29 and literally clueless about mostly everything! I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up! The thought of having children scares the life out of me, I can barely dress myself! Life basically seems like one big joke (because that's what I make it to disguise the fact that adulting petrifies me and is sooooo bleak!) except I have direct debits coming out of my eyeballs and nothing I say really seems to make any sort of sense! I crave excitement outside of seeing whats in my monthly Birchbox subscription. The ageing process is not being kind to me (the day I discovered a chin hair was a MAJOR low point!) My waist is rapidly expanding. My desire to be thin is ever increasing. My motivation to do anything about it is ever depleting. I have an inner need to buy budget gadgets that break or are completely useless and that desire never seems to fade, I literally have a house full of useless s**t!!! What is life?! I think its time for a Gin...................
