I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces. And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 9 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
Ok, normally in a business situation you would think that emails, or any type of correspondence for that matter, would be professional. But sometimes that’s not the case and in some industries, like customer service for example, they get more than their share of rude emails. So how do you handle it without losing your cool?
Don't Answer Them Right Away
Come back to them later, after you've had a chance to let them sink in, and they probably won't anger you quite as much. You'll stop dwelling on the email problem, send nicer responses back, and be able to move on with your day more effectively.
Kill Them With Kindness
Unfortunately, some people are just stubborn and will be a jerk either way. In those situations, the best thing you can do is cool off, answer their email as kindly as you can, and move on to your other messages. Again, make sure you're as polite as possible in these situations, because if you let yourself get angry, you're giving legitimacy to their rudeness.
