This is a question The Onosecond

Wired magazine once defined the 'onosecond' as the time between hitting 'send' and realising that you really didn't mean to send that to your granny.

What inappropriate email/text/photo have you sent to wrong people? Are they speaking to you any more?

rather unbelievable timing, this
This morning i received an email from a colleague ('Sandra') of mine with a link to the b3ta phallic logo awards. It was sent to a few addresses around the local office. I didn't regard it with any weight, especially as i'd seen it already.

Then another, apologising for the mistaken email. And adding 'Please delete' (in retrospect rather optimistically).

At that point I realised that Sandra had tried to send the email to a few friends, but her email client had auto-completed one of the addresses into the name of a company suggestion-box ([email protected]) discusion-group, which included all directors, managers and many more (inc. me!).

Cue mucho pisstakingo whilst she panickadly asked the IT guys to delete the emails from the various accounts before they were downloaded by the recipients.

Sandra hasn't yet told me whose name she was attempting to type when the [email protected] address autocompleted. Doesn't matter really - pffffft!!!
