Letter from the Director Ask Emerson Best Buddies Spotlight e-Buddy of the Month Tech Corner

Dear Emerson,

My e-Buddy really only sends me jokes and forwarded e-mails. What can I do so she only sends me personalized messages?

Dear Frustrated,

I can understand your concern. The best thing to do in this situation would be to ask your e-Buddy to stop sending you the jokes and forwarded messages. You can explain that you only have a limited amount of time each week to spend on e-mails, so you’d rather just write back and forth directly. Be clear about your limits – do you not want to receive any jokes, or just a few each week? Make sure your e-Buddy knows your limits.

You may have to remind your e-Buddy a few times, but be patient. She will certainly understand.

Signing off,
Emerson
