When "Reply All" Goes Wrong. Laughably Wrong.

My office, along with several other offices/companies, got a mass email from a big customer on a protocol change, probably hundreds of people on the email. Of course, some people replied all to confirm.

Well, some world class idiot replied all with this:









Can't make this shite up.

ETA: I have a macro that confirms if I meant to reply all for this exact reason

My company did a big anti phishing campaign. After the first email, they sent everyone an email saying it was an anti-phishing attack and XX% failed.

Some dumbass replied all “I flagged it and deleted it.” That led to about 30 “me too” reply all emails.

I called it the “me too” movement

You can see the name of the company in your pic. You may want to paint that a little better.

How do you not double and triple-check before sending an email like that.

I had a boss who worked at another area who came over to our area. Everyone feared him at first (turned out to be a great boss). First day he sends out an email saying how he expects efficiency, work smarter not harder, and how he loathes people who reply all automatically. Went on to say it should be used judiciously, etc. You guessed it several people replied all with duly noted, understood, agree, etc

Every few weeks the server goes down at my company and there's always a person that sends a company wide email asking if the server is down followed by about 25 replies from people saying it's down for them too.


Then another 25 emails from those same people after it goes back up saying they were able to get back on.


These people are all gen x or younger too. Crazy.

One of the smaller manufacturing buildings I used to work at had one of the workers Bob page Jack on the intercom system to call him.
He tried paging him several times but Jack was off work that day.

One of the office ladies in the office knew Jack wasn't in so she paged him back over the intercom and said "Bob Jacks off, Bob Jacks OFF "
Bob yelled no I don't and the whole building broke down in laughing.

True Story.

That’s pretty good.

I had an employee put a guys name in the CC line to figure out how to spell his name so he could talk shite about him, then forgot to delete it and sent.
