OK. This case was pretty out there and it actually had a happy ending for the woman who was fired. But it’s still a good reminder that what we write in our e-mail does matter – especially business email. And whatever we say and send can last forever.
So proofread what you write and think twice before you send. Better safe than sorry may sound old-fashioned, but when it comes to business email…it’s probably a good rule to follow.
Oh…and whatever you do, please don’t be SHOUTY.
Anyone have an email oops you’d like to share?
