Well 🐠 fam, I finally did it. I finally found the one thing worse than accidentally saying “Love you” at the end of a business call...the accidental eggplant emoji text to your new supervisor.

Play it strong from here. “You didn’t respond to my text? Was something wrong?” “Yeah - I sent you that <wink emoji>”
Or, play it innocent.
“Why - what does that mean?” “Really - I am shocked that you know that”. “Why would you think I would send you that? You are old enough to be my father/mother"

I wouldn’t use 🤗 for a long time bc I thought it meant tune in Tokyo. Glad that’s clear now.

Same when I used to tease a male colleague when work landed on him with ‘That sux. But no need to 💦 ‘. He enjoyed how long it took me to get that one

Got you beat - my male supervisor (I am female) IMed me meaning to say “come here for a sec” but instead wrote “come here for sex”, it popped up while I was presenting to a large team of clients and I have never been so embarrassed.

Mine isn’t nearly as embarrassing however I wanted to crawl into a hole and die haha. I was talking with a friend and we were leaving a meeting at the end of the day. We were sharing an Uber back to the hotel and I mouthed “I have to pee”. Then we go out separate ways. Didn’t think anything of it. Then I get a hangout from him asking what time I’ll be out of my meeting (he thought I said I have a meeting) and I opened hangout and said “I said I had to pee”. Thought it went to him however it went to our director. LOL.

When I was interning I texted a friend a picture of the awful wall art in the office making fun of it. Except I accidentally texted it to the partner in charge of my internship review.

They agreed and I got an offer.

On the subject of mistyping and autocorrect, be careful to double check your closing to a more formal email. G is dangerously close to T on the keyboard. Regards.

Could be even worse/better depending on the type of regards- warm(est), best.

Reminds me of the time back in industry during a town hall when our ex-McKinsey COO compared our lukewarm success to “winning the special olympics” and everybody just stared in shocked silence. Thought some of the employees were going to have a heart attack.
