Melanie is hosting Truthful Tuesday for Frank this week. The subject is text etiquette.
Question: Is it ever even vaguely acceptable to share really bad news (not mine for a change, but someone I know well) via group text? No name attached to the text of course, and one is left wondering who the hell is texting.
I don’t think that sharing really bad news by any kind of text is a good idea. If someone has had an accident, is very sick or has died you ought not get that news by means of a text message.
I do get that a group text is a quick way to share information but that seems very tactless and if you don’t even know who sent it you can’t contact the sender for clarification.
Nope. not acceptable.
