03:07 pm - I get letters
From unprofessional, half-crocked associates:

I spent a lot of time last evening handling problems that u created by poor communications and then trying to back track cause u did not believe that writing a final report distributed across many people who had not yet had primary responsibilities needed discussion.

Alex needed a lot of calming down last evening after he sent me a very scathing email about u. Curiously u chose not to include mary or me in your response to him ---if there was a response to him?. As you undoubtedly noted in the email I sent alex, I defended your actions quite gratiouly in writing. There have been lots of mistakes in this project, I hope you have recognised them, and they will help u in the future.


(Incidentally, this could have only have been the series of events in some wacked out parallel opposite universe.)

Quite honestly, I am on the opposite side of...pretty much anyone, who, in a professional capacity (or really any capacity) uses "u" for you.

Me too! (I won't even do it in text messages.) I also doubt she knows that the American spelling of "recognized" does not have an s in it.

The idea that the person who crafted this piece of... writing... could accuse anyone of "poor communications" is pretty amusing, except for the part where you have to work with him or her regularly.

So Alex is mad at you, and you're supposed to discuss that with the writer and Mary...?

I also like the idea of a "gratuitous" defense. I more than suspect she thinks she means gracious but gratuitous is actually probably what she means to convey.

Oh, but it's not even gratuitously. It's gratiouly. *weeps*

I guess my eyes filled in what they wanted to see to avoid the pain?

Also, what is exactly does that first sentence even say? Does not parse.

Yeah, the only email I've gotten from Alex is "I'm really frustrated! Is this really the best way to to do this?" To which I replied, sorry, I thought it was, but apparently not. Please do what you think is best."

(Kerfuffle was INITIATED by the writer of that email when she sent this dreadful email to Alex lambasting him for not doing what she thought he should have been doing. I made the mistake of trying to step into the breach and fix things.)

Just the few words "u created by poor communications" by themselves reach epic levels of irony.

Unbelievable...

This made me laugh far harder than the situation probably calls for.

Indeed. I am sorely tempted to write a reply that begins "Thank u for ur gratious email..." but I feel the sarcasm would be lost on her.
