It’s Monday

Oh my goodness.

It’s only 11:01 and I’ve already had one of those mornings. I know you know what I’m talking about.

Every time there’s new information on a crisis, I send email updates to a distribution list of 199 people. These people are all over the world. So I always pay very careful attention to my emails to make sure they are error free.

Well, always except today, apparently.

This morning I sent out an update to 199 people. After a minute I saw that I had forgotten to attach the report. So I quickly sent a correction (to 199 people) with the subject “REPORT ATTATCHED” and the following message: “Oops. Please find the final report attached. Sorry for the mistake!”

And then a few minutes later I noticed that I hadn’t attached the report to the correction. So I RE-forwarded it (to 199 people) with the subject line “REPORT REALLY ATTATCHED” and this message: “Wow. Last one. I promise. I’m so sorry.”

30 minutes later I realized that I had only sent the message to myself, not the list. So I sent it again. To 199 people.

Then my boss Chuck pointed out to me that I had spelled “attached” wrong.

Chuck, please fire me now.

  1. Like Suzanne said, we’ve all been there…but that doesn’t make us feel better in the moment. I’m sure most people will be gracious about it.
