A few months ago I replied to an email that was copied to me from a colleague in sales. It was a request for a huge amount of (unnecessary) detail that he was asked to provide by one of an important customer's engineers. He copied it to me, the customer's senior management and quite a large circulation inside both our companies. Being very busy at the time, and knowing which individual originated the request, I commented on the pedantry of this particular person and how this was typical of this man to ask for all this unnecessary work. I suggested that we try to put him off although, knowing the importance of the business, I expect I would end up having to do it etc. etc. I then hit "Reply to All" instead of "Reply". Cringe.I tried to recall it to no avail. The customer's management were quite nice about when I sent the apology (they may even have agreed with my rant) but I don't know whether they ever showed the email to the guy himself. I was so embarrassed. I decided to never, ever commit personal comments to an email in future. I have not had any contact with this particular man since but I expect I will sometime. I got down to work and sent answers to all his questions though.
I've done that 'reply' to the wrong person thing! Highly embarrasing. Anyway, there's the time I was running for the train and my skirt fell down! I carried on running while kind of holding onto it, and fortunately the guard waited til I'd got on before blowing hiswhistle! [:I] I gave that skirt to the charity shop.
