POEM – High-Touch, High-Tech

High-Touch. High-Tech. Communicate with Respect.
By Sarita Maybin

LOL, TMI and OMG
I can’t understand what you’re saying to me.
Email, Skype and cell phone too
So many ways to talk to you!

The magic words are still thank you and please
Even if you text and tweet with ease.
Bold fonts and all caps are email attitude
Texting while we’re talking is just rude!

Ditch the email and catch a clue,
Pick up the phone if something is bothering you.
If you can’t say something nice, what DO you say?
Whatever it is, don’t post it on Facebook today.

High touch.  High Tech. Communicate with Respect!
