Sometimes, we used to work in the office or home until very late at night. Can you imagine that you need to write and send emails to your clients or friends when you are not in a very sober situation? You might be typing the wrong words, using the improper grammars or impolite wordings without processing them before sending out. Then, you may regret about it the next morning.
