Nothing Says “I’m Thinking About You” Like a BCC

Being Jewish, it’s that time of year again.  Rosh Hoshana and Yom Kippur bring a host of good wishes from friends, family and colleagues.  For others, the season will start mid-December around Christmas and New Years.  You know what I’m talking about – you check your email in the morning and sure enough you received some heartfelt good wishes from someone for the holidays.  When you scroll up, undoubtedly you notice you’ve been BCC’d (blind carbon copied).

When did a BCC become enough for good wishes?  In my humble opinion,  it’s silly (and I’m being polite).  If you want to express any type of sincerity regarding your thoughts for or about someone, a blind carbon copy just doesn’t cut it.  Pick up the phone, or how about something absolutely insane – a handwritten note.  Of course you can hit a lot more people by scrolling through your address book and double clicking on names – but I think it’s a waste of time.

I know those people who read my blog, and who have sent me BCC’s will undoubtedly take me off their list next year.  I’m good with that.  If I’m worth calling, I’ll get the call, and if I’m not in that circle of friends, please skip my name when you get to the S’s in your address book.
