People don't READ emails!

Today in office, we got spammed like hell. Not from outside, but from inside.

What really happened was the company is getting new speed boats and the HR came up with the great idea of opening a contest for naming boats. This was announced in a mail; which was sent to a group in the email server which included all employees. But in the mail; it clearly says,


  • Send in the names to HR by e-mail hr@company name dot com
  • Think of 5 different names with its meaning
  • Submit before the closing
but seems no one noticed or read the first point and the reply was sent back to the all employees account which sends the mail to everyone (all the names that everyone suggested started to flood, this was fun though).Seems like half of the company is suggesting names; imagine the result. The best part was even the CEO did the same.
