Must engage brain before hitting ‘send’….

Engaging my brain before I open my mouth is not one of my strong points, but I had thought I had mastered the art of engaging my brain before hitting send when I type an e-mail.  Apparently not.

Having spent weeks chasing a manager in the US for some information, he finally got back to me just as I was on my way out the door.  Knowing I would still have his attention if I replied straight away I pinged back a mail without really thinking.

‘Thanks for the stats.  Will work on them when I get back and send and questions on to you – just on my way out to go pole dancing now.’

I can’t complain I guess.  He did reply straight away.  The response?

‘Oh my…’

For the record:

morning glory

I did think about adding a picture of me pole dancing, but didn't want to be responsible for anyone being ill. Frankly, these are far more attractive.

  • It is pole dancing lessons I go to, not a second job to help with the mortgage.  In fact, the only way I could make money from it is through the comedy value that people may get from watching an uncoordinated elephant attempting to do tricks
  • It is not even a little bit attractive to watch (as has been said of the spectacle: ‘how is it possible to look more sexy in your pyjamas than you do when you get within two feet of the pole?’)
  • It is an exercise class so I wear trainers, shorts and t-shirt.  Nothing any more erm…revealing than that.

I just wish there was a way to slip those details into a mail to the manager in case he has a very wrong idea of me now.  But I have a feeling it may make the situation worse so for once I will engage my brain and keep quiet…:o)
