Be Careful How You Sign

CherryIn the text messaging world LOL (laugh out loud) is the stick your foot in your mouth killer faux pas of all faux pas. People get so in the habit of adding LOL that they add it when they shouldn't.

  

Someone Texting:

Really sorry to hear about your dog dying. LOL

 

LOL? My dog died, I will so come to your house with a can of whoop-ass.

 

eMail is no safer. I've noticed lately that people have started messing with their Signature Files. You can set up a bunch of  Signature Files and choose which one you want to use for any given eMail. A Signature File usually includes your name and contact information, and maybe a disclaimer. People sometimes add a picture, and now it seems they are adding their closing.

  

An example Signature File with a disclaimer might look like this;

Sometimes priaism is due to environmental stimuli that might be eliminated by social interaction.  Most often priapism  is the direct result of a mutation in one gene. However, one of the most difficult problem ahead is to find out how tight jeans contribute to this complex pattern of inheritance, such as in the case of mental illness.  

 

 

Thanks!, LOL, and that's Cocktail Talk.

 

Thank you for reading,
