It’s Now Officially Considered Rude To Leave Someone A Voicemail

According to a new book about 21st century etiquette, leaving someone a voicemail is now officially considered “rude”. The book is called, “Kill Reply All: A Modern Guide to Online Etiquette“. The author argues that there’s, “no purpose for voicemails in the modern age.”  And having to sit through a two-minute message is “super inefficient and inconvenient.” She says you should never leave voicemails now.  And if someone doesn’t pick up, just hang up and send them a text instead. Spur-of-the-moment phone calls are also rude now, apparently.  Instead, she says to text first and ask the person if they can talk on the phone. A few more rules she wants us to follow:  Don’t use periods at the end of texts, don’t always “reply all” to group emails and only use emojis in moderation, especially in work emails.
