Ending an email is always sort of a weird experience. Do you just write your name? Because they saw your email address, so they know who's sending it. Do you just skip the ending altogether? That seems so abrupt, and maybe even a little passive-aggressive. Do you add a little farewell, something like "As always, forever yours," like it was an actual letter? Well, that? That's just kind of odd.
But it's not even close to the weirdest way you could end your email, as Twitter has shown with the hashtag #OddWaysToEndAnEmail. They're listing all the truly bananas ways they've either ended emails of their own or seen emails ended. Of course, some of the respondents are making up odd ways to end emails, which are every bit as funny as the real ones.
Check out these odd ways to end an email, and use them as a "what not to do" checklist next time you're struggling to find a way to end your digital correspondence.
What are you, a teenage girl?

"Save me, Jeffrey."
via: TwitterTruly haunting. Jeffrey surely lived the rest of his life, wondering who sent that email and if there was anything he could have done.

It is funny to think that I could be truly anyone's, huh?You only type out an "lmao" when something is really funny, so I suppose seeing an email with this email would be-- oh what's the word. Devastating? Yes, it's devastating.

You gotta proofread before you send, my dude!
I meant to say, "Stay in touch!" in an email to 100 students. I accidentally said, "Stay and touch." #OddWaysToEndAnEmail— JoyAt6 (@JoyAt6)1572892836.0

"Lol" means "I'm kind of ashamed to say this."If you're going to end an email with a plug for your YouTube channel, do it confidently! Be proud of what you've made! That's content, baby!
It's simple; elegant.In medieval times, using a wax seal would not only prove the identity of the sender, but also that the letter had not been tampered with in delivery. It was the old-fashioned version of a CAPTCHA asking you to prove you're not a robot.
They are pretty cool, to be fair.
