I was teaching in North Carolina this week, when a participant in the business writing class shared her most embarrassing email mistake.
The mistake was in an email she sent to everyone in the company–about 400 people–in her role as a senior manager of human resources. It involved a typo in her greeting, a typo her grammar and spelling checker did not catch, and neither did she.
What was the mistake? This simple, enthusiastic greeting:
Hell to all!
How is that for embarrassing? Can you match it?
