Is this how you ask?

Today I received an email at work sent to the entire department:

“Hello,

Yesterday i lost a silver watch with multicolored jewels on it at the *building name removed* or around the outside of the building walking to the street. if anyone has seen it i would like it back. ”

Is this how you ask?  No “please” or “Thank you?”  How about “if anyone has seen it I’d be grateful if you could let me know.”   If I had found it I would be scared she was going to accuse me of something!

  1. Hey F! Good to see you here!
    Sounds like a great idea…..if I did have it. I haven’t been anywhere near the building. It just sounded like a strange way to get people to return an item that someone lost to me!
