In the world we live in today, a lot of our writing happens in the digital space—such as texting, e-mail, and social media. And, many times, it is easy to send or post something quickly without thinking it through first. The consequences can vary. The audience may be offended, or may even misinterpret the message. Going through a step by step process when we write can help us get our point across to our audience with the desired intent.

Are U kidding me? I need this weekend off me and my family are goin out of town. I don’t have time for this!
PLEASE REPLY ASAP!!!
- Describe the impact of sending the above message and the potential consequences for George.
