I'll take it. Luckily it wasn't anything bad or harsh, just not something I would have said to tehm. In the way I did. Seriously though, my heart friggin stopped and my adrenaline shot through the roof.

When I was a senior associate, I meant to reply to someone else with an email calling my senior manager bitch but sent it to the SM instead. Yep, full on called her a bitch and said some other really nice things about her. Luckily, I was out a client with another SM who was super cool. SM2 called our IT department and talked them into recalling the email before SM1 could read it. He stood up for me when IT balked and said “you don’t understand, SM1 IS a bitch and she will make her life hell if she reads this message. It was a stupid mistake. Please have mercy on her.” They did it! Pulled the message out and deleted it. I will never forget how scared I was. I have also never made that mistake again!

Luckily, they didn't pick up that it was a vent about them, but more about the project. Then we had a good conversation. Not gonna lie, I was shitting my pants and my hear is still beating like crazy. Good grief! So much for attention to detail.

I’ve done that before when I was a staff. Manager wasn’t near his computer (although still in the room) but it was unlocked. The senior and I pulled off a miracle and managed to delete it before he saw. Involved acting and a slight of hand. Now I don’t vent over Skype. I actually liked him as a manager but we’d been stuck in a small windowless room (mostly just the two of us) for three months so we were starting to get annoyed with each other as would be expected.

I was once senioring a job and had staff shit talking me on Skype, it was obvious as they were typing like crazy . By mistake they left the room and one of them left their Skype up. Got to see it all but let it slide...

Was it valid criticism? My worst nightmare is having the ppl below me hating to work with me.

For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard.
