Michelle I did a similar thing too - I was sending a VERY personal email to my sister during a time when my life was like a soap opera drama - it was about my relationship breakdown, steamy hot new guy I was shagging (and a co-worker!), plans to quit my job, how much i hate my boss etc but instead of emailing my sister whose first name starts with "All" I emailed "All staff" instead
I was able to recall the message, but plenty of people saw it before I realised the error of my way - hahaha.
Another time, (same company) I sent off my first marketing proposal for a big job we were hoping to win by tender. I didn't check the proposal thoroughly before giving it to the courier who was standing by to get it to the tender box on time. Can't be a minute late or you're out of the game.
Anyway, I gathered ALL of the paperwork on top of the printer and included some highly sensitive litigious letters at the back of the proposal from another company that was threatening legal action against us!
Needless to say, we didn't win the job. The guy did call and ask my boss why this letter was in there... he confronted me and was quite good about it and said "This is why I look at every page before I send it out. Have you ever seen me go through a proposal page by page? ..." blah blah blah. And he was right, of course. he also said 'That's the kind of mistake you never make twice,' and he was right ... again. I am sure he would've fired me if I did it again. Thank gawd for second chances - the hot steamy co-worker (from story 1) wasn't working there yet and we may not have ever met! hahaha
PS Zoe - that is a CLASSIC. Thanks for the giggle!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
