You should stop texting ‘OK’ to people. Or ‘yes’. Apparently these words, without an exclamation point or an accompanying emoji, can come off as passive aggressive, dismissive, or angry. This comes from New York Times advice columnist Caity Weaver. In person an ‘OK’ comes with a facial expression, a positive delivery, maybe even a thumbs-up. By text, ‘OK’ or just ‘yes’ are cold and could be seen as rude.
