Do not hit that send button!

Men Texting

The send button is there, tempting you to hit it the moment you finished an email or text message. It can be the misheld belief of some dyslexics, and until recently by me, that “normal” people can write a text message or email and do not have to go back and edit it. This is not right – having spoken to plenty people on this, they always wait 5 to 10 minutes before sending their emails as they need to proofread it and sometimes realise that the initial message makes no sense at all. If you, like me, have held this belief for years is a massive surprise. It is a good habit to cultivate, if you have time, to pause before sending particularly emails and text messages (although most my friends have understood my unique take on English language while texting by now!)
