Do you inadvertantly send rude emails/messages? (+3)

I agree that it is difficult sometimes to properly interpret someone's words without the benefit of facial expressions or body language. However, I've also discovered that sometimes, no matter how nicely something is written, the person on the other end is offended because they're looking for the worst interpretation, not the nicest.

That's true. It works both ways. :)

People read e mail's/messages and make it what they think it means. I notice on here (Including myself) that people don't ask clarification on comments and automatically assume the worse. By the time either realizes it's a miscommunication it's too late.

Some people never know when I'm being serious or just joking around.... and I try not to hurt anyone's feelings, but without seeing one's face, things do get taken out of context.

Not often, but I have been misinterpreted a time or two along the way.

I guess... "Shove it down your pie hole", could be misinterpreted..

I do it on purpose. I send them to my mother mostly.
says Visigothicreign on Sep 6th 17 (#2648461)
That's what I do, as well. Has she said anything about my messages yet?

Oh is there a mother's network?

Subject: "Congratulations, you are a ** **."

Only to my boss... I keep all the nice ones for people on here :)
