Please? Thank youPenelope Trunk wrote an interesting post on 4 words that sound nice when spoken, but not in email. Man, they make a lot of sense too, especially when she explains context.

Here they be:

  1. Please
  2. Okay
  3. Fine
  4. Thank you

I’m also proud to report that I made 2 of these mistakes in an email I sent to someone this morning. Oops!

I also like some of the suggestions made in the comments.

What also irks you when people send emails?
