Career Limiting Moves – Reply All

In a recent episode of a Netflix show called Grace & Frankie, a vitriolic and profanity-ridden email with very damaging statements was accidentally sent to a mailing list.

Fortunately for the characters involved, Siri auto-corrected most of the really bad stuff, and Vin Diesel became an unwitting participant in the storyline.

Unfortunately, there’s real life, and in real life I’m sure we all have stories where we hit Reply All in our email unintentionally, with detrimental effects.

Instead of telling you my own story here, I’d like to hear from you, either in the comments or on Twitter (@bornsql). What was your worst Reply All incident?
