I keep on receiving emails that are more like a text message rather than emails and I find this disrespectful as I am always taking some extra time to write my emails in a professional form and manner. But this may as well be just a cultural conflict - I wasn't raised in the US.
I often write my emails in the following format.
I hope this email finds you well (or thank you for your email, if I am replying.)
[Address the matter.]
I look forward to hearing from you (if I am expecting a response.) Your prompt response is greatly appreciated (if this is a matter requiring urgent action). Thank you for your time (if I asked for something that will take sometime to get it done.)
Best regards (Sincerely/ Best wishes/ Very respectfully/ etc.)
But in response I sometimes receive one-line responses without any courtesy content. I am well-aware that emails aren’t necessarily like letters, and some warrant short, quick responses. However, I find one-line replies more suitable for a text message and I expect the person I am contacting to share the same level of mutual respect.
Do I have valid reasons to consider these kind of emails rude or am I looking at the things from the wrong stand point?
