EXPERTS: "You Should Never Say "OK" In Work Chats"

Saying a verbal “OK” in normal conversation is a totally fine and acceptable response. But we’ve been reading too deeply into text messages since we got our first Nokia brick phones in middle school. You can’t read emotion or sarcasm over text and chatting apps, so sending a simple “OK” won’t always fly – especially with your coworkers.When you’re using digital communication with your coworkers like email or an in-house messaging service like Google Chat or Slack, sending just an “OK” to any question or request might come off a little too harshly. It’s not that “OK” is rude, but to avoid people thinking you’re being curt, try to add a lengthier response. Even just adding an exclamation point can soften the blow a little.Some alternate options if you’re stuck?“Sounds good to me!”“You got it!”“Sure!”Save your OKs until you’re the boss, and you can freak out some intern with your short responses. Until then, make an effort to be super polite when you’re messaging people.Source:Huffington Post
