    lol yep, the smug tone is my way of screaming :"YOU BUNCH OF FREAKING IDIOTS!!!" without the screaming. It's amazing how you develop the skill to get a point across in a business-like fashion without ever having to actually SAY what you're thinking... it's fun. Almost like writing lyrics.

    Update - after getting the ceremonial reprimand out of the way, (it's not going on any sort of record thankfully) my supervisor is now laughing his *ss off. :)

    Writing carefully-crafted businees letters is an art and a skill I'm highly familiar with. There are some very creative ways to say, "no way in hell, and you're a dumb-a$$ for asking".

    That is REALLY funny.

    Glad to see your boss took it as an amusing accident... Points for him.

    You need to put this on your resume.
     
  10. hahahaha

    I work in publications so i can appreciate this situation.

    It sucks because the T is adjacent to the G on the keyboard... and "retards" is an actual word, so an auto spellchecker won't identify it. The best thing to do is to avoid using the word "regards" in that fashion.

  14. I've had dreams similar to your story where I was in a technical situation and the pressure became too much.. and well, an accident like yours happened to me.. except your experience was no dream.. you actually called some LAN Admins 'retards' .. oh man thats just too delicious to believe!! Great story

    I learned a long time ago that in business and life in general that tact is being able to tell someone to go to h*** and they are happy to be on there way!

  20. Lesson 1: ALWAYS poof read everything you write before sending.

    I'd have hated being your supervisor, that must have been really hard to reprimand you without cracking up half way through.
