Attack of the Spider Monkey on Mountain Dew or Beware of the "Reply All" Button.

"I don't know about you, Connie. but I'd like to stick a Spider Monkey on Mountain Dew on this Jody."

This one line email was recieved by a woman in my company today. Problem is that the woman who recieved it is the Jody being spoken about in the email as the target of a Mountain Dew enhanced spider monkey attack.

Needless to say, Jody is not terribly pleased with the agent who sent her this email, and I can't help but think it is going to damage their business relationship. The moral to the story is, DO NOT WRITE AN EMAIL LIKE THIS. (Or if you REALLY need to express this type of opinion, make sure that the person you are talking about is not CC'd on the email.)

That said, man am I happy that she sent the email, because it was a source of amusement around the office on an otherwise typically dull Wednesday.
