The following email showed up in my (mostly-unused) Gmail account today, cc:ed to a total of seven people. Obviously it was mis-sent, and it was obviously meant for one of his employees.
I started to reply with something to the effect of, "Who are you and why am I getting this email? I don't work for you." After reading the email carefully, I decided that it was better to reply-all. I think my favorite part is, "Dates, days, times must be totally accurate. This process should never ever be rushed! This is not a race. This is a relaxed, accurate, thoughtful contact from our office." Perhaps our dentist should use the same accurate, thoughtful mechanisms for contacting his employees?
I want to touch base with all of you on something really important this weekend: What happens in the business area (front desk).
Edit: He responded!
Oh I am so sorry!! My fault. My name is (Name) and I am a dentist in (City). I was sending an email to my staff and I transposed one of the email addresses to yours! You must have thought I was off my rocker!! This is really embarrassing. please forgive me!!!
I responded by thanking him for the unintended irony of mis-sending mail that contained the sentence, "This is a relaxed, accurate, thoughtful contact from our office."
