The Frequency of Faux-Niceties in the Workplace, as Displayed by Soul-Sucking Closings Used in Intraoffice E-mails

Unabashed admission: The HUGS and XO! were from my mom. My cubicle life needs more cuddling and less ingratiation.


  1. 'Cheers' is #1 in the academe. Strikes me as vaguely pretentious. 4 yrs later I'm still not used to it.

  2. i have often said: "thanks!" is the single rudest possible way to close an email. i'd sooner consider you a friend if you knifed me than if you signed an email thusly.
