Leaving a Voicemail Is Now Considered Rude!

According to a new book about 21st century etiquette, leaving someone a VOICEMAIL is now considered rude.

The book is called, “Kill Reply All: A Modern Guide to Online Etiquette”.

The author argues that there’s, quote, “no purpose for voicemails in the modern age.”  And having to sit through a two-minute message is “super inefficient and inconvenient.”

She says you should NEVER leave voicemails now.  And if someone doesn’t pick up, just hang up and send them a text instead.

Spur-of-the-moment phone calls are also rude now, apparently.  Instead, she says to text first and ASK the person if they want to talk on the phone.

A few more rules she wants us to follow:  Don’t use periods at the end of texts . . . don’t ALWAYS “reply all” to group emails . . . and only use emojis in moderation, especially in work emails.
