Vorige week begon het allemaal met één onschuldig mailtje
Integration Test Email #1.— Eduardo Cuevas (@EduardoCuevas) June 18, 2021
Anyone else get this from HBO Max 🧐 pic.twitter.com/NuYAVvKjnI
Wat bleek: een stagiair had ergens op de verkeerde knop gedrukt
Kan gebeuren natuurlijk. HBO bleek zelf gelukkig een goed gevoel voor humor te hebben, maar half Twitter deed vervolgens ook een duit in het zakje en deelde hun grootste fouten op de werkvloer. Mocht je zelf lekker blunderend deze maandag doorkomen: het kan altijd erger.
We mistakenly sent out an empty test email to a portion of our HBO Max mailing list this evening. We apologize for the inconvenience, and as the jokes pile in, yes, it was the intern. No, really. And we’re helping them through it. ❤️— HBOMaxHelp (@HBOMaxHelp) June 18, 2021
1) Menstrueren kun je leren. Agenderen ook
Dear Intern, I was using my desktop calendar to make a monthly note of when I started my menstrual period, but after several months I realized I was making that note on a calendar I shared with all of my colleagues company wide. I was 37 years old.— Caissie (@Caissie) June 18, 2021
2) Deze man kun je danken voor je muziekloze uren
Dear intern,— Daenney (@daenney) June 18, 2021
I once globally took down Spotify. It almost happened twice. My team was awesome about it and I'm still here. You managed to find something broken in the way integration tests are done. It's a good thing and will help improve things. Good luck <3.
3) Zet lekker de verdachte in z'n ondergoed
Dear Intern, as a young lawyer I proof read a legal brief and filed it with the court. I caught a typo and blindly used the global find and replace function. Pro tip: don't do that. My brief argued for the rights of "the panties." Not "the parties." All 50 pages of it. 🤦🏻♀️🩲🩲 https://t.co/PDJYMXuOlw— Suzanne Lovett (@sdtlovett) June 18, 2021
4) Oh ja, dit was ook gebeurd
Dear intern, it could have been worse! pic.twitter.com/IBC0tqjz7g— Holly Nicole (@Celynnen) June 18, 2021
5) Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: STOP MET REPLY ALL GEBRUIKEN
Dear intern, I once sent an email to 5k employees asking them to update their benefits but I didn’t bcc them so hundreds of ppl hit reply all and then hundreds more hit reply all to tell others not to reply all and it crashed our whole system email system. https://t.co/gE8BBjtv7v— Jenny Lawson (@TheBloggess) June 18, 2021
6) MEEP MEEP
Dear Intern, when I was 25 I made a PDF assigning each employee to the Muppet they reminded me of the most. I meant to send it to my work friend, but I accidentally sent it to the entire company. My supervisor (Beaker) wanted to fire me, but the owners (Bert & Ernie) intervened. https://t.co/zMKvQ6nxjj— aerin. (@AerinChevyFord) June 18, 2021
7) Fijn om te weten dat de politici het zelf ook saai vinden
Dear Intern,— National Security Counselors (@NatlSecCnslrs) June 18, 2021
When I was an intern I emailed the other 3 interns saying "I'm bored; is anyone doing anything interesting?"
Instead of going to every intern account it went to every account. Every staffer in every office of every Senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee. https://t.co/017HropALG
8) Ja maar schrijven is ook meoilijk
Dear Intern:— Angela Mayfield (@pinkrocktopus) June 18, 2021
Once, when I was a junior copywriter, I applied to my dream job at @TheAtlantic and wrote “copyrighter” on my résumé. Like, I misspelled the job I wanted, which was a job for good spellers.
You’re doing great, okay?
9) Dat je per ongeluk een hond mailt
Dear Intern, as a baby prosecutor I was in charge of subpoenaing witnesses. I sent a subpoena to Officer Dakota to testify. Officer Dakota was a dog. He did not testify but was a very good boy.— Caroline Bundy Fichter (@MyFranLawyer) June 18, 2021
10) ...Of expres
Dear Intern,— James Harper (@JHarperMedia) June 18, 2021
I once auto-populated a mass vet email from @morris_animal to list the constituents as their “dogs name” instead of their first name and it got the best email response ever. A mistake turned into a new marketing process when we sent mass emails.
11) Hier kunnen alle GME stockholders nog een puntje aan zuigen
Dear intern,— wistful clown dog (@AttackDogButSad) June 18, 2021
At my very first job I sent out a major corporation's press release 12 hours early and they had to reschedule a product launch. Their stock price dipped because of it. I was mortified at the time but now it's one of the coolest things I've ever done.
12) Lekkere schijtdag heb je dan
Dear Intern,— Hannah Holloway (@hholloway2010) June 18, 2021
In the first month of my new HR job with a major defense contractor, I sent out an email about shirt orders that included the division president and several corporate leaders.
