Be careful what you say

Dear Maam,

When I said the TDS Report no longer exists, what I meant was the current TDS Report no longer exists.

The whole point in the email (and indeed the rest of it after that line) was to describe the new report and extoll its virtues over the old one.

But you didn't read that far.

And you forwarded it to the AVPs who didn't read that far.

And they forwarded it to a VP who didn't read that far.

And we've been putting out fires ever since.

In retrospect I should have used smaller words and more pictures.

Yours longsufferingly,


(Actually for all of the hair pulling, teeth grinding, overwork and stress, the past few couple of days have been a lot of fun.)
