A METICULOUSLY crafted and devastatingly detailed passive-aggressive office email has received a short, cheerful response.
Francesca Johnson spent 175 minutes drafting the message about the marketing team’s failure to RSVP for the official Christmas Zoom party, and believed it to be a true masterpiece of the genre.
She said: “It had everything. Ostensibly polite, but with a vicious, bubbling undercurrent of very palpable rage.
“I was certain that by the end of my polemic that bitch Lucy would be left a trembling mess and that she’d take a few days to reflect on my request to be sensitive to others’ deadlines.
“Instead, within 45 seconds, she replied ‘my bad!’
“Two minutes later, when I’d expected the subtle barbs of the penultimate paragraph would still be reverberating around her head, she added ‘yes sorry we’re all coming (not gerald)’ which only made things worse.”
Lucy Parry, the recipient of the email, said: “Yeah it was 1,000 words of bollocks by someone without a proper job to do. Next.”
