Anyone need a good laugh? Well you can certainly have one at my expense today.
Remember this post last month? No? Well, click on it and have a read.
Go ahead. I'll wait.
Yeah, that's pretty funny. Ha ha.
Now THIS is why I KNEW I should never have agreed to such a thing. Here's a copy of an email I received this morning:
Stephanie, congratulations on the article in the new "intermetso" magazine about you and your singing!
The article gave us an idea. I work for Metso Paper in Atlanta in the Capital Sales department for Paper, Board & Tissue, as an Executive Assistant. I've worked to put together the Metso Paper North America annual sales meeting each fall. We usually have around 115 attending (give or take a few). We are booked at the Marriott Riverwalk the week of September 29.
What I am leading up to is that we have a dinner scheduled for Wednesday night at the Marriott and we usually have some kind of entertainment at the main dinner. We would love to have you sing for us! Any chance you would be available?
We would appreciate it greatly if you could. Just let us know what we can do to entice you (& your fee for such events).
Thank you, and again, congratulations.
Are you just rolling on the floor laughing yet?
I've said it before. Yes, I sing. I sing at church mostly. With a band. And yes, we rock (but it's for Jesus!!). Other than that, I'm pretty much happy with absolutely NO ONE acknowledging anything about me.
Is that so hard?
And this isn't the first email I've received.
Since when do people actually read these company published newsletters??
So I have a dilemma. I'm the contact who receives our offices supply of said newsletters. I looked at one and about fell out of my chair when I saw the LIFE SIZE picture of myself on the back cover!!
I think I'll shred them all before anyone in my own office sees.
That's it. Crisis averted.
