mlle Posted May 20, 2008 Share Posted May 20, 2008 I have a pretty convoluted question but I'm freaking out so maybe someone has some words of advice, or just commentary/criticism. I'm about to start an internship that's required for my master's program this summer. I had e-mailed my future boss about the start date of the internship. She e-mailed me back, and then added a line about my upcoming defense of my internship proposal with my grad committee: "Good luck with your proposal review, you'll do great. (I just sat in on ____'s review and they really are pretty gentle (don't tell anyone I said that )." Then I forwarded my boss's reply to a close friend of mine who doesn't go to my school, to whine to her about my upcoming proposal defense. The text in my message said, "this is so embarrassing." (I was basically embarrassed that everyone on my committee knows I have a hard time with public speaking stuff, but anyway....) So then my friend just told me that she sent a reply to my forward, but she accidentally sent it to my BOSS instead of ME. The reply said, "Embarrassing? This lady is a goof!" Apparently my friend accidentally replied to the forwarded attachment which had the original message, instead of to me. This is really, really bad. I sent an e-mail to my future boss attempting to explain and apologizing, blah, blah, and I plan on calling her on the phone to fess up in a little bit, but I mean this is REALLY bad. I forwarded a basically private message to a third party. What's going to become of me?? Am I going to get fired? Even if I don't get fired it's basically all over for me. I haven't even started the freakin internship yet. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
