Please consider it as a personal invitation!

Posted: February 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Means of communications might have increased many fold, however, we are surely losing touch! I am surely not against technology; however I believe they are changing the whole dynamics of how we communicate!

The title of the post is something that I increasingly see in my mailbox. I really don’t understand if it solves any purpose. Maybe other than ofcourse not giving the other person the “right” to complain anytime later in your lifetime about not being “invited” to a function!

In my stint in the corporate world it was not uncommon to receive such mail as a group mail to the entire team! And people would not even mention it if you happen to talk to them anytime after receiving the “invitation” even though you sit in adjoining cubicles!

Another interesting thing that I noticed was the mail would go to all@office.com in case the wedding is happening hundreds to kilometres away while would be restricted to only team@office.com if it is closer home! Mind you it would still be without any personalization!

As they say in the marketing circles to succeed in the new world the companies would have to combine high tech with high touch. I guess the same goes for individuals!

Does anyone actually go to weddings/functions without a phone call anymore?

Do you?

    completely agree…this happened to me quite a few times..I made plans to attend the wedding as soon as I was informed of the dates but ended up waiting for the personal invitation or at least a phone call and sometimes even the mass invitation mail didn’t arrive…

    Did you check the spam folder? 😛

    On a serious note would you have gone if there was a mail mailer only?

    This time i was kind of planning to go..but to be honest not to attend the wedding but to meet friends who were planning to come.. 🙂
