Receptionist and fiance left red-faced after she sends email discussing their sex life to entire office.
Most have experienced the pang of horror after accidentally sending an email to the wrong person – but few will have felt the shame of mistakenly emailing hundreds.
But this is what happened to a receptionist, who sent a graphic email to her partner about their love life – then accidentally sent it to her workmates.
Melanie Anderson sent saucy emails to her partner Eric Knisz while working on the desk of the oil services firm where they both work.
But the couple, who are due to get married this year, were caught when she sent it to all her co-workers yesterday by mistake.
The receptionist sent a brief message to colleagues at Integrated Subsea Services Ltd to let them know the sandwich van was outside.
But she accidentally wrote the message on the top of her private mail and sent them the whole email trail by mistake.
Within a few hours the email had been sent to other oil firms in Aberdeen and was all over social networking sites such as Twitter.
The receptionist began emailing her fiance at 9.48am and he replied: ‘Hee hee sexy f*****, I fancy you xxx’
Eric then sent his wife-to-be another racy message, complimenting her about their love life: ‘I love making love to you it’s ace.’
She replied: ‘Good because I totally fancy you.’
A short time later Eric states: ‘I loved our s****** last night…it was ace.’
And Melanie replied: ‘As I do you handsome, sexy husband.’
The emails were then accidentally sent to other colleagues at the harbour office.
ISS said the couple were ‘mortified’ and had apologised for any offence it caused.
Bruce Webster, HR director of ISS said: ‘Personal emails are not encouraged at work and we have taken the appropriate action with the members of staff concerned.
‘They are absolutely mortified by the content of the email trail which was meant to be private and apologise for any offence caused by it going outwith our organisation.’
Melanie and Eric were not available at the Waterloo Quay office where they both worked. It’s understood Melanie only works in the mornings.
But one colleague said Eric had to leave work earlier because something ‘urgent’ had cropped up.
She added: ‘It’s not nice, it’s something bad.’
The couple were not available to speak yesterday and could not be tracked down.
Eric is believed to have proposed to his girlfriend last year, and their email discussed how they would wed in 310 days.
One member of staff, Deborah Bowman, sent out an email after receiving it herself saying: ‘Our receptionist is having a productive morning! Ha Ha…’
And within an hour the email trail had found its way into the inboxes of other oil staff working at completely different firms and the email has become a viral sensation.
One Twitter user, known as VJ, seemed unimpressed by the content, mocking the pair for their way of expressing themselves.
She wrote: ‘#sandwichvan is pure gold. “I love making love to you, it’s ace” – Aberdonians – rivaling the French in the language of love since 2013.’
Another Twitter user, called Kayleigh Ross, clearly enjoyed the mistake though. She Tweeted: ‘Tuna Sandwich – £2.50 Bottle of coke – £1.40 Accidentally telling your entire work on how you were last night -PRICELESS #SandwichVan’
