Just received an e-mail from a company which started with 'I hope you are well?'
I suspect the writer didn't mean what he said. He was probably asking after my health, though goodness knows why - we've never met and I may work from my bed due to a congenital illness, for all he knows. (Have you noticed how call-centre calls all start with this unnecessary question? Thus making them even more annoying than they are). What the writer actually wrote was that his hoping was in question. Personally, I would caution him against exposing his inner doubts in this way.
The e-mail was promoting a Professional Written Communication Skills Training Course. Nuff said.
