My post-work hours are precious, and there’s little I find more annoying than hearing Slack’s all-too-familiar knocking interrupt my afternoon nap. (I’m not sixty years old; I just wake up super early for work.)
The Office went off the air in 2013, the same year Slack launched to the public. That means that, sadly, our heroes at Dunder-Mifflin weren’t able to experience the joy and the pain of the service. But what if they did?
If someone asks you a question online or over text, do not respond with “OK.” or “Yes.” You might use “sure” or “yep” without punctuation; you should probably add an exclamation mark. Otherwise you might sound passive aggressive, dismissive, or angry. There’s a good reason for this.
