Pull up a chair folks, Uncle Schmoe is going to offer you up some advice.
When sending out a snarky e-mail regarding a vacancy in the dick bureau due to the untimely demise of a not so popular detective, please please please make sure you click on the right "group" before clicking the send button.
This will prevent the Chief of Police from needing to have an apologetic tone in his e-mail, when he sends out the formal announcement of said detective's passing.
This action will also eliminate the need for you to send another e-mail, this one to the entire department, apologizing for the first e-mail. As sincere as it might be, no one who reads it will believe it.
Also remember that this kind of boo-boo may not result in formal discipline, but it will likely not be forgotten during the span of your career.
This is the best kind of advice folks, the free kind. Right now, there is an officer with a very thick layer of egg on his face. I don't think he'll ever get it off. I'm just glad he doesn't work for us.
Thanks for reading,
