Hellooooooo, You've Got Mail

Hey Kids! Guess what? I decided against starting a new blog and to just keep this one. Let's get things started here again with a nice little story from where I work.

I was a little late getting out of work yesterday, and as I was leaving I noticed that my coworker who sits next to me had inadvertently left his computer logged in when he rushed out at the end of the day. So I sat down at his terminal and reached for the mouse that was placed on a charger at the back of his desk and then thought to myself, “You know, I could virtually be him in e-mail form.” So I decided to play a little prank and write an embarrassing e-mail about this guy, BY this guy. I started by sending an e-mail to a buddy of his in sales that he hangs out with a lot. In the e-mail, [he] expressed a secret homosexual love for the buddy in sales. It wasn’t a lengthy or graphic e-mail, but it said enough to be a good prank. I then finished it by saying, “[The guy] wants to send this e-mail to coworker friends because [the guy] no longer wants his love for his buddy to be secret.” I then decided against copying others and just logged him out and anticipated what might happen in the morning.

Not much was said today between the guy and his buddy, but the buddy did eventually bring it to the guy’s attention later in the morning. The guy later asked our IT manager if we were having hacker problems with the e-mail server. Some other people seem to know about “The E-mail”, but I am not sure if the guy told them or if the IT manager secretly passed it on to others. I guess this prank didn’t hurt anyone because it was pretty much forgotten about by the end of the day. Somehow, I imagined this being funnier than it actually was.

Haha. Maybe you should have written a similar email to the boss...or something. Maybe a letter of resignation.

Meh. he probably wouldn't have thought that was funny either. :)
