Here’s What Happens Whens Someone Accidentally Hits ‘Reply All’
Surely, this has to happen at your work. Someone inadvertently hits "reply all" and it snowballs it a mess of emails mixed with jokes, confusion, and frustration. This is exactly what happened within the digital walls here at Townsquare Media. The names have been dropped to protect the innocent, or because I won't want to get into trouble for sharing names and/or email addresses.
It all started with an email stating that an email about a local fair (nowhere close to Rockford) canceling. Nothing in the body of the email, just a subject.
BF Fair Cancelled...I'm writing about it now.
This caused much confusion for me because I'm easily confused sometimes. The moment I noticed the person sent this email to all contributors my boss (who was I was in a zoom meeting with) exclaimed, "I just got an email from someone and she is going to be mortified when she realizes she sent it to pretty much the entire company." He didn't think it was a good idea when I chimed in with "I'm going to reply all." As you can guess he advised that I don't. Thankfully, others within the company have the same mindset as myself. Get ready for a rollercoaster of replies... to practically everyone in the company... nationwide.
That is very unfortunate. Thanks for sharing. I'll share some good news, Idaho will be completely open this weekend. 😉
Not too bad for a starter, but it gets better.
Not the boyfriend fair! Noooooooo!
No no you, you’re confusing the Boyfriend Fair with the fair that NO boyfriend likes, the Sandra Bullock and Freddie Prinze Jr. Fair
... many of us have no clue what "BF Fair" actually is.
You mean it's not a Butterfinger Fair? 🙁 😂
Another person politely explained how to avoid this from happening in the future.
If this string happens again, put all contributors (and everyone else) in the BCC section. Now they can't reply all and have everyone see it :)
