That was the subject line of an email sent to the entire company-yes all 100 people-by accident…..probably 6 years ago and I STILL laugh about it. He meant to send a joke forward to everyone but instead forwarded an email between him and his wife-talking about his boss of all things. I guess it could be worse, he could have been talking about the previous evenings hot sex via email (not a good image if you ever saw him). I kept that email to look at for years in my “keepers” folder so that when I needed a laugh I could just read those 2 little words that separately mean nothing, but together ruined a man’s day, week, who knows, perhaps his job.
I thought of ‘morning love’ last week when my friend did a similar thing, accidently sent an email to the very person that she was talking about in said email. It was mortifying and nerve-wracking and absolutely horrible. She felt awful all weekend and eventually sent an apology since she was caught red-handed and had to work with this person. It has blown over by now, but it could have been bad-like grounds for HR bad.
Needless to say, ALWAYS double-check the recipient of your emails, especially when trash talkin’.
See, my blog can teach you life lessons…it’s not all my boobs and baby.
