Tuesday Tip: Avoid the Angry Email

I’ve written before about avoiding the angry email, but it’s worth repeating.

Sending an email when you are angry is almost never a good idea.  You are very likely to write something you don’t really mean or to exacerbate the original problem by bringing your anger into the situation.

Instead, wait until you have calmed down and maybe even go talk directly to the person instead of sending the email at all.
