Most embarrassing day of my life - I have sent an email to a young male Collegue saying these exact words 'OK I will do a POO'

Now what I should have said was 'ok I will raise a PO' (purchase order) but in my rush I typed the above am I'm just mortified- he did place my order so he knew what I really meant and he hasn't said anything about it but I'm so embarrassed blush

Email again asking if he's done the paperwork

I'd only worry if he asks for pics

Look on the bright side: you've probably just given him a laugh.

If it's any consolation, I'm a translator and have been known to mistype 'public' and send out a document referring to 'pubic services'. grin

I once sent an organisation wide email looking for some wellies I'd lost (I think it had been snowing) except I didn't type wellies fshock I described them as flowery too blush

The only solution to your embarrassment is to repeatedly make the same mistake. This way you will completely normalise the sentence “OK, I will do a poo.” Trust me, this will work.

If I got this email and assume you were joking and give you props for the laugh!

Love the idea that if you were telling your colleague you were doing a poo you'd write the whole word in capital letters for emphasis grin

@Quizeerascal I did a similar one-ordering lots of white wellies (food industry) I sent an e mail asking department heads to get everyone's willy size 😂😂

I once sent out a letter from the Cunty Council. Freudian slip.

Yes ✋ - @recrudescence has it!

This thread belongs in Classics already

I’m mainly asked to proof read because of the number of times my colleagues have nearly issued documentation related to Pubic Affairs.

I was once eating cake with a colleague and she meant to say to be “I really need a spoon” but she actually said “I really need a poo”.

She never spoke to me again after that.

I once sent out a mass email to my clients saying I hope this doesn’t cause too much constipation (I can’t remember what I was writing but I used the dictionary and didn’t check the word it changed it to)
Also sent a manager an email saying I hope you had a good period - I was supposed to say festive period grin

A friend sent out an inter-anal memo to the whole company in his first week.

Not sure why you'd be horrified and embarassed if he's clearly understood what you meant. confused
