Why I Love Japanese Business Emails

They're so polite! I don't have to worry about sounding grovelly! I can sound like ME! You know. Like:

Thank you very much for confirming the receipt of my work. Thank you very much again for confirming receipt of my invoice. Thank you very much for selecting me for your proofreading work.

Thank you so very much I am so eternally grateful for your work.

Best regards,
Me


I was apologizing so much at my own reading the other day, I felt like an alien. If I could just be half so polite to my own parents, I think there'd be 50% less conflict in my life.
