I was reading Mashable when I came across this story about an email research study. Some highlights:
* 62% of people check work email on the weekends
* 19% choose vacation spots with access to email
* 59% check email from the bathroom (up from 53% last year)
What freaked me out the most was the realization that the email sign-off “xoxo” annoys 25% of respondents and “cheers” irritates 13%.
So if you’re one of the people to whom I email and signed “xoxo” I am truly sorry to have annoyed you. But what’s a better choice? Yours? Respectfully submitted? Sincerely? Later? Best? Ciao? HTH! (Hope this helps!)? Have a great day!? Thank you so much!? Talk to you soon! (TTYS)? TTFN?
