Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

I suddenly have the urge to blog lol!

You ever catch someone from work lying in an email? I asked a colleague to send an email asking for additional information about a move taking place that may affect the budget on my project. The recipient of the email responded that there wasn’t a move and “things weren’t as they seem”. WTF, does that mean? I have no idea. I do know that on Sunday an email was sent by the recipient (I was cc’d on it) stating there would be an upcoming move. Turns out I deleted the email but thanks to the good folks of Google Desktop I was able to pull up a cached copy of the email and forward it on.

My immediate reaction was disbelief; I knew I wasn’t going crazy and remember seeing an email on Sunday about a move. Then I got pissed because for a quick second I thought this lie made me look like an idiot and there’s nothing that I hate more then having egg on my face at work. Then I laughed and remembered who I was dealing with; this guy has a shady rep. Once again thanks to Google desktop I was able to prove that I wasn’t the idiot and am anxiously waiting to read what excuse he’ll come up with to get himself out of this one.

I can't say I'm surprised because I've experienced similar at work. That's why I save EVERY e-mail sent and received.

Why is it when you show a little frustration I smile? Its like, I'm not used to reading that kind of stuff from you and when I do, I feel whoever's on the other end of the receiving blow is in for it. What do I have to go by with that comment? Ooooh, just the fact that you are my Haitian sista in arms! Hi luv! Holla-ing at'cha from the road from the West Coast!

Recognize that Google desktop search analytics can be somewhat intrusive. Be careful.. If you don't wish to have your most cherished stuff data mined, use with caution ;)
