28 Hilariously Embarrassing Times ‘Reply All’ Emails Went Wrong at Work

Despite their best efforts to the contrary, plenty of people have made fools of themselves in the workplace. At least in the instances of rage-quitting, the embarrassment is fleeting, and they can shuffle along to another job. But in the situations below, the embarrassment is a painfully public broadcast of idiocy that everyone has proof of, like the Redditor whose affair-having coworkers hit “reply all” while flirting. Not only did more than 500 employees receive confirmation of their affair, but they had to do so by reading the words, “I’m going to pork you so hard later.” 

The porcine-centric dirty talk isn’t the only gaffe people made while communicating electronically at the workplace either, and every one of these stories will make you very paranoid the next time you send an email.

BigOldQueer 7y Worked on a TV show that everyone except the creator hated, and everyone knew from the ratings would be canceled any second. I was working in legal, and on an email chain where a report of outstanding legal issues for the upcoming episode was sent to literally everyone you could think of (50+ people) ranging from me (one title above entry level) to the head of the network. A middling executive replied to all they're getting canceled and we still have to deal with this shit? To make matters worse, she attempted to RECALL the email, just drawing

emotional_viking . 7y I used to work for one of the largest newspapers in the world. One day an email came through that was literally sent to the entire company worldwide.

The woman who accidentally sent the email was kicked out of the building that day. ... 152

 7y We had this guy from the main office, Pete, who comes up from time to time. He's an arrogant asshole. I decided that I couldn't stand that smug prick within literally 30 seconds of meeting him. Anyway, we had had quite a bit of turnover in our department since Pete's last visit, so our boss wanted to schedule a lunch so he could meet everyone. So, his admin sent out a mass email to see who might be interested in lunch on Thursday. I replied back that I wouldn't be coming because I had a conflict, and then

wombatsarefuzzypigs . 7y I emailed my team at work a few ideas to improve productivity. My coworker thought she replied only to me on her response email, which said Great ideas, stuff like this is why you should be the department head.

Не never mentioned it, but basically ignored her and excluded her from team meetings until he retired (which fortunately was only 6 months after that because he was a terrible boss). ... 13
Greatfreedom 7y A design artist at a print shop I worked at ten years ago (I'll call her Z) had always been one of those flakey-but-only- just-good-enough to keep types. She'd create files that looked fine to customers and onscreen, but required shitloads of prepress de-fuckery to make printable. Zero real technical skill, when it should have been half her job. One day a little after lunch, a company-wide email from Z to her husband came through where she described waiting with glee for the opportunity to purposely fuck up a big repeat yearly job right before she planned to

My boss went to e-mail me to complain (I was his sounding board) but accidentally replied all to another company-wide email. His message sent to the entire company? I wish Donna would have emailed me this story so I could delete it. She saw the email a few minutes later, threw keyboard up in the air, grabbed her purse and ran out of the office. My boss had to profusely apologize the next day.
SarahKathrine . 7y I used to work at a law firm and one day an email went out to everyone (about 40 people) that was about a specific case and had very little relevance to my job position so I ignored it. A few minutes later I got another email from different attorney with a snarky response. Well an argument started between these two attorneys (still replying all to the office) and after about 6 or so emails a third attorney wrote  yeah I well my dad can beat up your dad. By the way you have been sending this
