suppose you’re in a rush, felling tired, not paying attention to your screen, and you send an email that could get you in trouble.
realisation will probably set in seconds after you’ve clicked “send”. you freeze in horrors and burn with shame.
what to do here are four common email accidents, and how to recover.
clicking “send” too soon
don’t waste your time trying to find out if the receivers has read it yet. write another email as swiftly as you can and send it with a brief explaining that this is the correct version and the previous version should be ignored.
writing the wrong time
the sooner you notice, the better. respond quickly and briefly, apologizing for your mistake. keep the tone measured: don’t handle it too lightly, as people can be offered, [email protected] especially if your error suggests a misunderstanding of their culture(i.e. incorrect ordering of chinese names).
clicking “reply all” unintentionally
you accidentally reveal(透露)to entire company what menu choices you would prefer at the staff christmas dinner, or what holiday you’d like to take. in this instance, the best solution is to send a quick, light-hearted apology to explain your awkwardness. but it can quickly rise to something worse, when everyone starts hitting “reply all” to join in a long and unpleasant conversation. in this instance, step away from your keyboard to allow everyone to calm down.
sending an offensive message to its subject
the most awkward email mistake is usually committed in anger. you write an unkind message about someone, intending to send it to a friend, but accidentally send it to the person you’re discussing. in that case, ask to speak in person as soon as possible and say sorry. explain your frustrations calmly and sensibly-see it as an opportunity toclear up any difficulties you may have with this person.
36. after realising an email accident, you are likely to feel _______.
a. curious b. tired c. awful d. funny
37. if you have written the wrong name in an email, it is best to ________.
a. apologise in a serious manner
b. tell the receiver to ignore the error
c. learn to write the name correctly
d. send a short notice to everyone
38. what should you do when an unpleasant conversation is started by your “reply all” email
a. try offering other choices.
b. avoid further involvement.
c. meet other staff members.
d. make a light-hearted apology.
39. how should you deal with the problem caused by an offensive email
a. by promising not to offend the receiver again.
b. by seeking support from the receiver’s friends.
c. by asking the receiver to control his anger.
d. by talking to the receiver face to face.
40. what is the passage mainly about
a. defining email errors.
b. reducing email mistakes.
c. handling email accidents.
d. improving email writing.
fifteen years ago, i took a summer vacation in lecce in southern italy. after climbing up a hill for a panoramic(全景的) view of the blue sea, white buildings and green olive trees, i paused to catch my breath and then positioned myself to take the best photo of this panorama.
unfortunately, just as i took out my camera, a woman approached from behind, and planted herself right in front of my view. like me, this woman was here to stop, sigh and appreciate the view.
patient as i was, after about 15 minutes, my camera scanning the sun and reviewing the shot i would eventually take, i grew frustrated. was it too much to ask her to move so i could take just one picture of the landscape sure, i could have asked her, but something prevented me from doing so. she seemed so content in her observation. i didn’t want to mess with that.
another 15 minutes passed and i grew bored. the woman was still there. i decided to take the photo anyway. and now when i look at it, i think her presence in the photo is what makes the image interesting. the landscape, beautiful on its own, somehow comes to life and breathes because this woman is engaging with it. zxx|k
this photo, with the unique beauty that unfolded before me and that woman who “ruined” it, now hangs on a wall in my bedroom. what would she think if she knew that her figure is captured(捕捉) and frozen on some stranger’s bedroom wall a bedroom, after all, is a very private space, in which some woman i don’t even know has been immortalized(使……永存). in some ways, she lives in my house.
perhaps we all live in each others’ spaces. perhaps this is what photos are for: to remind us that we all appreciate beauty, that we all share a common desire for pleasure, for connection, for something that is greater than us.
that photo is a reminder, a captured moment, an unspoken conversation between two women, separated only by a thin square of glass.
