Re: Ineptitude

There are few things more embarrassing than being reprimanded for a large financial loss.

One of these things is receiving the news via an e-mail message that went out, for no apparent reason, to your supervisor, the reprimander's supervisor, and their managers.

There are few things more satisfying than being able at a glance to point out that there is no financial loss, just that the person reprimanding me is an idiot who doesn't know how to read.

One of these things is being asked by the idiot to respond to a special group e-mail address that will forward my reply to all of the original recipients and to her entire department "so somebody else can look at it in case I'm at lunch."

I was tactful.
