Sotty for mu typimg...

Are you speaking to your client as if he were a middle-schooler?  Don't let your client think you're being lazy or disrespectful!   I'm going to clue you in on the most ridiculously easy way to communicate appropriately even if you're answering emails while attempting to dismount an escalator <<ouch>>.

Have you noticed a trend lately in the replies you've been getting to your emails?  They look like ---  ys ill b therr

What the heck is that? More and more business professionals SQUEEZED for time are frantically typing on the go. This means more fat fingered crazy messages with weird abbreviations strange misspellings and no punctuation to speak of......and ......send.  Park the car ... answer an email .... Break in the meeting .... Answer an email... stop at a red light ... answer an email.  We all do it, don't pretend you don't!   Let me help you out:

Get to your smart phone's user guide (ugh - I know!) and find out how to create your outgoing email signature. Then create one like this, "Sorry for the brevity and typos, I'm replying via my Smart Phone so that I don't keep you waiting for an answer".

How cool is that? You're excusing your crappy typing in the name of giving great customer service!

Hppy respndng!


P.S. Please please please don't use "text message" abbreviations normally used by 8th graders. This is insultingand actually MORE difficult to read than normal English. Leave the C U L8ter for your kids - your clients deserve, "See you later".

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
