I am the biggest dumbass EVAR

Holy crap, that’s all I can say.

Today I wrote a long long email to my friend John Keith about the problems I was having getting my 2 realtors to send me any properties to look at and how I wasn’t going to “fly all the way out there unless I had some properties to see.”  20 minutes later I get a reply to said email from my boss, John Kielty.  Notice the similarity of the two names.  My boss says, “Odd email.  Sounds like you need a new realtor. By “fly all the way out there” am I supposed to assume you’re looking to relocate?” Obviously I haven’t told anybody at work about looking for a new job.

So I had to go talk to him and tell him about it.  I guess everything went okay, I mean what was he going to do?  He understood wanting to relocate closer to family.  It was going to come out soon anyway, and as Sara pointed out now I don’t have to worry about how I’m going to tell him!  Still, I don’t think all the fretting in the world would be as bad as the feeling in the pit of my stomach when I read the response from him and realized I sent the email to the wrong person.

Also, this was at 9:30 in the morning, so needless to say, my day didn’t go very well.

In other news, I called the job and asked for more money.  That’s right, I handled it like a man!  Everybody says, “Don’t take the first offer, reject it for sure.  They expect you to.  They’ll respect you more.” but then you say, “Oh, did you reject your first offer?” and they say, “Oh, hell no, not me.  That’s crazy talk.”  So I went back and forth but eventually I did it!  So I’ll keep ya’ll posted on that.  If nothing else, maybe I can serve as a warning to all the idiots who say reject the first offer…

  1. I’m so sorry! That must have been absolutely mortifying! I get embarrassed enough when I send an email to the wrong person, but if it was something telling my boss something I hadn’t told him yet myself? Eeeek!

    I guess next time I send a message to someone at work, and it auto-completes to some other random person in the company, I’ll try not to feel too bad!

    You poor thing!
