I admit to being a bit "old school". Can't really bring myself to start emails with "Hi" and "Hello".
I still address letters to HMRC to Dear Sir, but wonder whether I am out of touch.
I am thinking particularly when you receive a letter from HMRC signed by Miss G Smith. ( A lot more common now and rightly so).
In an enquiry situation I like to have as much on the client's side as possible and I wonder whether having received a letter clearly signed by a lady it might not start on the wrong foot by addressing the reply to Dear Sir.
Any thoughts or am I just getting paranoid in my advancing years? Maybe some of the ladies out there can tell me how hey would feel?
