"These aren't poems. They're more like long-form fortune cookies."
oh snap....have seen this happen when i worked at the bank....dang....what a mess....ugh...and at that point it rocks the world of everyone that got copied on it too....
Yes, thankfully this time, it wasn't "Reply All" but rather a "Forward" to the person the sender was complaining about - now *that's* awkward.
how true, how true... no one would believe how many people click this by accident...and oh....
Precisely! AN accident!
:)) yes, the send could be a fateful click! Love this brilliant 4-liner:) also, typing too fast and skipping a letter, creating the wrong word can really mess up a message;)
That's true too - that SEND button just daring me to punch it.Remember, haste makes waste!
Oh crap...I've done this! BAD! I'll not take up your space with all the lurid details...but I feel ya Poet...auto-correct can be brutal too...had to explain myself more than once ;) But...I've lived to laugh about it all!
Thanks, yes that autocorrect can be a foil, but you survived.
Hilarious! Well played!
Oh my, yes I know someone who lost their job in just this way. Vigilance is vital!! :)
Haste makes waste, I say! Thanks.
Been there, done that. Sums it up in four short lines! Your advice also applies to posting responses in forums TOO quickly. Sometimes I think there should be a mandatory waiting period before anything electronic actually can go through. Might spare a few of those careers and affairs...
I agree, when I write quickly out of passion, I usually make errors. Slow it down, clown, I say to myself. Thanks.
it's got a beat I can dance to.made me smile.:0)
Thanks, I really worked hard to get the rhythm correct!
Yep! I think many of us have done that. Good insight. Oh, and I so agree with Andrew's response. I got in serious trouble for that in one job.
Yes, there but for the grace of God go I. Thanks.
Lmao. It's true! Thanks for the laugh tonight, handsome.
Thanks, it's rare when I can make a woman laugh while keeping my clothes on.
I've seen this happen a time or two. it's amazing how a rash mind can do such stupid things. luckily I tend to stew so I'm at more of a simmer than a boil when reacting.nice concise verse.
Thanks, and yes, just stew in yer juices, as the saying goes.
A fatal error, as windows used to say. And it can definitely make you crash.
Yes, it reminds me of the blue screen of death. Thanks.
Ha ha now that would be an oops!
Yes, as my wife would say, Oopsie Poopsie! Thanks.
One must always be careful when in the workplace. Ouch!Pamela
Thanks, as I write this attending a work meeting!
The lab group I used to work in all got letters of apology after this mistake by an immature member of the lab (gimp was amongst his choice of words about my office buddy).
Gimp? Ay caraumba!
Nice little limerick. My momma once said Dont write nothing down you don't want people to read and if you ain't got nothin nice to say keep your mouth shut. Those Arkansas people were purty smart. She would approve if your advice. Thanks!!
Thanks for your kind words, yes as I get older, I hope I get smarter!
hah! wise words indeed--- and rhyming, no less. i am impressed. :)
Thanks! I am impressed that I impressed you!
f'n hilarious, and poignant. I have not made that mistake myself but have been on the receiving end of those that have. I cringed at the errors of their keyboard ways before laughing aloud.Cheers,Mark Butkus(good to see your sense of humor again)
Thanks, and my sense of humor never leaves, but sometimes he knows when to shut up (or shut down).
how true that is....insert foot in mouse...thank you
Great pun! Thanks!
Quite a witty and wise message, stated with flair! Love it!! :)
Too true Brudda. I accidentally hit Reply All with my response to one of my Tea Party sisters' forwards (Rush sycophants never even add an original comment), and all her friends found out the awful truth: Jo has a sister who researches and responds, with bullet points, to all hateful forwards. I don't know what she found worse: my response, or the "outing" of her as a TP'er with a progressive sister! Anyway, she wrote back that I was "sadistic." 'Nuff said. Ha ha ha ha Ameleh
