These days the universal sign for a kiss – 'x' – is often used to sign off texts and emails. But the sign off on work emails is most likely to end in a cringe for the recipient.

    Haven't come across 'X' too often, but I thought that LOL was Lots of Love, not Laugh out Loud (how embarrassing!)! I always thought it strange / uncomfortable when people would sign off that way (particularly a subordinate male colleague who obviously loved laughing), and thought (being a gen X) that I just wasn't up with the way that Gen Y's work!...solution is to now just ask my lovely Gen Y assistant to interpret strange acronyms.
