For instance, here’s an e-mail the average employee might write to a cohort:
Good morning gentlemen,
After reading over your proposal for a new recurring conference call on Monday mornings with IT, I can assure you that our team is ready to give the green light so long as you loop back with Carl Tomkins.
Many thanks in advance,
EM (Every Man)
And now, the same e-mail written by a Vice President:
Re: new recurring conference call on Monday mornings with IT—our team is ready to give the green light so long as you loop back with Tomkins.
And the same e-mail by a Senior Vice President:
Re: conference call with IT—ready to give green light so long as you loop back with Tomkins.
And, lastly, the Managing Director’s e-mail:
fine Just be sure to loop back with Carl
Note how the Managing Director’s sentences have no regard for punctuation, do away with all salutations completely and rarely take up more than one line.
Am I right? Do other Neatoramanauts have similar experiences that prove my hypothesis correct?
