What Not To Do

What Not To Do

If you desire to end your day at the office without frustration, take note, the following is not how you send a report to a colleague for proofing.


  1. Write report
  2. Click File, Send To, Recipient as E-mail
  3. Enter e-mail address in the “To” field
  4. Accidentally start typing the message in the attachment field; erase beginning of message
  5. Write message in body field.
  6. Send message
  7. Close document without saving because: a) it’s attached to the e-mail and you likely won’t need it again; b) you’re trying to answer a question on the phone, and; c) you’re a moron.
  8. get an e-mail from colleague stating, “Sure, now try attaching the file”

*headdesk* CRAP!!! Yeah, deleted the attachment as well as the unintended text. Thankfully it was only a page and I can rewrite it.
