We all know them. Those emails that go out to an entire distribution list. 9 times out of 10 it’s not directed to you so you read the first sentence or two and then just delete it and move on. I got one the other day though that I read top to bottom and simply had to share. This was sent to all the employees that work on my floor by one of my friends who I’d consider a “cool” guy. Mad props to this guy for having the balls to hit send:
Subject: A message to my concerned colleagues
I’d just like to let everyone know that yes, I am OK. I have gotten several comments today asking about my appearance, and I’d like to put those rumors to rest:
- No, I am not wearing a wig.
- I did not get kicked out of my house.
- Unfortunately, I did not party hard last night.
- No, I am not going through emotional trauma.
I simply misplaced my bag with my now famous hair product inside it.
Due to the number of questions and comments I have received today, I feel as though my hair brings a small amount of joy to each of your lives. during the workday So, in light of this revelation, I will not let you, my esteemed colleagues, down again. Whether that means showing up late for a meeting, or miss a presentation, I will ensure that my hair is in top form each and every day. I do apologize today for any inconvenience or distraction that this situation has provided.
