I hate when people in higher ranked positions then I cannot do their jobs.

About a week ago, my inbox was graced by a newsletter sent out of my community college.

Actually, now that I think of it, there were two of them. The first looked *exactly* like spam, but for some reason I opened it anyway. When I discovered it was from my college, I sent the author an email suggesting they add the college's abbreviation to the subject heading to prevent deletion.

Later, I received the second newsletter. Other then a few misspellings (because spell check must just be too hard to use), it was a decent newsletter and had some important information in it. I copied down some of the dates.

Two days later, a correction was sent out: they had completely messed up the date for early registration, it was in November, not October. Okay. ::fixes calendar::

A day after that, there was another correction. Transfer day wasn't actually this week, it is 2 weeks from now. Alright. ::fixes calendar::

This morning, I woke up to an email that read "[This newsletter] sent by [author] has been recalled."

The ENTIRE newsletter. They recalled the entire thing.

How hard is it to fact-check an email before sending it out to the ENTIRE campus?

The part that infuriates me the most is that this woman is the Executive Assistant to the college PRESIDENT. I'm willing to bet she gets paid much more then I do.

I can forgive a few mistakes... but, sheesh.
