When starting an IM with a friend, and your opening salvo is "*pounce* *snuggle*", it's important to be sure the IM window you've opened is with the person you had in mind, and not one of your somewhat stuffy (though quite nice) VPs.

I should say that I did, in fact, catch my error before hitting "enter". THANKFULLY.

Okay, that makes this post just plain awesome instead of hysterically awkward. :D

I agree. It kind of made my day.

Maybe that's just what the stuffy VP needs?

Better up the chain than down, I suppose.

You reminded me of this story

headline: "10% of sexts are sent to the wrong person"


Glad yours was caught before sending.

Heck, I've done this in real life.

A couple months ago I distractedly told the head of tech support here that I loved him. Which, I would totally own if I did, mind you, but classic mind/mouth disconnect.

You know how most email clients auto-fill the address as you start typing, if you've emailed the person before? Once I dated a coworker named Alan. His boss, with whom I also worked, was Alex. My boss was Alfred. No doubt you see the problem . . .

I'll keep that in mind.
