    From the Department of “What were they thinking?”

    You accidentally dial the wrong number, calling an old boyfriend by mistake. You compose an e-mail complaining about your boss, and somehow send it to your boss.

    It’s never pretty when these things happen; and, when we make mistakes like this we usually feel like idiots. Fortunately, there’s always someone just a little worst to make us all feel just a wee bit better about our own mistakes.

    Well, this is a thinly disguised 'don't mess with us' message from MS.

    On a lighter note, I once referred to a customer as a [email protected], believing it to be forwarded to a colleague. Very shortly afterwards I realised that I had hit 'reply' rather than 'forward'.

    Meh. My blood ran cold for a while, then I confessed to the MD. He chuckled and said 'I'm interested to see how you get out of that one'.

    As luck would have it, the customer was indeed a [email protected], and he obviously knew it - so the issue was dropped remarkably painlessly.
