No hello

1 minute read

[Conversation starts:]

Bob: Hello!

[10 minutes pass...]

Alice: Hi, Bob! What can I help you with?

[Another 10 minutes pass...]

Bob: When is our next meeting?

[Another 10 minutes pass...]

Alice: It's 12pm... Bob.

Have you ever experienced something like this? It is really frustrating. Why couldn't Bob tell Alice what he actually wanted to know in the first message? He would've gotten an answer within the first 10 minutes. And he would've saved Alice the trouble of thinking Bob is trying to communicate something urgent.

Instead of this being a long post, I much rather tell you about I usually send this to my friends and co-workers when they start the conversation with "Hi" or "Are you there?".

Please check out and share it with your friends and co-workers!
