Tell Us Your Worst Work Email Or Chatroom Disaster

Email, Slack, Gchat, Hipchat, WhatsApp, there are just so many ways to cause a HR nightmare these days.

If you work in an office, chances are you have probably totally fucked up an internal message to your coworkers. Maybe it was a typo over email.

Or maybe an email, that in retrospect, might have been a little too excited.

Maybe you're one of those people that texts with their boss. Things could go even worse with texting!

I mean, just think how easy it might be to forget you're supposed to be professional.

Or maybe you have a Slack room or a Hipchat room or something like that.

Well, you're probably using something like this at work and you've probably come pretty close to sending something ultra-embarrassing.

For instance, have you ever done the unthinkable?

Accidentally left someone CC'd in an email? Emailed porn to the entire office? Send us your stories!

Give us your most horrifying, embarrassing, cringeworthy work chat moment. Let's face it, if it hasn't happened to you yet, it will eventually. So let's all heal together.

Share your story in the comments, and you could be featured in a future BuzzFeed post. You also might get featured on BuzzFeed's Internet Explorer podcast.

If you're super, super brave, record your story and email it to or tweet it at @iexplorer and we might play it on this week's episode!
