There is much debate on what makes a good email sign-off. Should you go with “Thanks!,” “Cheers,” or “Best?” Should you be friendly or should you be professional? What’s the right tone? An email sign-off that reads as energetic and upbeat to one person often comes off as sappy or insincere to another. It’s gotten to the point where it seems like there actually is no good way to end an email. So if we’re all doomed to annoy each other via email with our various faux pas we might as well have fun with it. To that end people on Twitter recently began sharing their suggestions for creative or weird email sign-offs under the hashtag #OddWaysToEndAnEmail and the results are…helpful?
Here are some of the weirdest ways to end an email, according to Twitter.
