One of the warning lights on the dashboard in our car came on recently. It's not an emergency, but our car needs a visit to the mechanic. My husband and I verbally agreed we should take it in, but I knew we should have it in writing or we would both forget.
So, I sent him an email as a quick reminder. This was the Subject of the email:
Can you make an appointment for the car? EOM
EOM means End of Message. In other words, "There's no need to open this email and/or reply back to me. What you just read there in the Subject line was all I needed to say."
It's a handy time-saving tool…except when the person you're writing to doesn't know what EOM means and then opens the message and then replies to you to ask what EOM means and why the message was blank. (If that happens, just create an email template.)
Spread the word below so we'll all save time!
