Karma Is A Funny Thing…

I learnt a lesson today,.. becareful when u want to reply to an  email from  a series  of mass-email,..because u wont know who gonna read your email or whether that person like the email you sent.
and also how important to have ‘ethics’ and ‘attitudes’ in sending email.

It all started few days back when i received a mass email  from a friend who also CC that email to another network of frens that even i don’t know who they are. It was just another joke sent thru chain email but then it was followed by a series of reply by the recipients.They were chatting about pregnancy or something.It was like looking a MiRC chat or YM but in email version .My inbox was full with their ‘chat’ . So, i clicked the ‘reply all’ button and sent to all recepients with hard and straight forward -clear message:

"..Weiii!!..my god!!!..penuh dah inbox aku nih…aku tgh tunggu email client
ni
tau tak???
Korang penah dgr tak SKYPE or YM
or MSN???.."

OK..i admit .i replied in a very rude and ‘cruel’ way.it was so harsh and impolite way.Soo harsh and cynical.An unethical way to replied an email. But i was in a tense moment that time.The boss are screaming for a confirmation from clients . I was in full adrenalin as the email from that client was my only saviour.It was the normal dramatic moments that you can find in IT Sales Job.

I realized that i ‘d hurt the feeling of some people in the email list with that kind of hostile email.Especially those who previously ‘chat’ thru that emails.

Later today, as i was doing some housekeeping and cleaning of my inbox ,i found one of the reply from that chain email that really  caught my attention. A guy  asking the recipients to pull his email out from the CC list if they want to have private mail reply because he was waiting for a client to confirm the contract about replacement project for Nuri helicopters. The cool part was,he also mentioned my name.

"…Jika Inbox saya penuh dengan email yang bagi saya sekadar email pinggiran ini,
maka saya minta jasa baik saudara untuk keluarkan saya dari list anda. Seperti
En. Khairy, saya juga menunggu email client saya untuk kontrak .."

OK..at least he replied in a very decent and polite way.Not like my stupid reply.

You see, I m sooo in love with ‘Big Boys Toys’ and  ‘War Machines’ like helicopters,fighter jets and even guns & rifles.So, i sent an email to that dude, asking what sort of helicopter is he going to proposed to MINDEF to replace our aging ‘flying coffin’ or S-61 helicopter (NURI)and i also shared some of my opinion about that.

Clumsy enough, i clicked to "reply all’ and i forgot to erase all the other recipients email adds and then  i just click ‘send’ straight-away.It was a really stupid and clumsy mistake.

few minutes after that, a lady sent me this,also thru mass email.

"…uk aloh hang ni….

ghajin sungguh hang no
tampal2 gambaq heli..tulih2 lagi…

hang takdak kerja ka
cheq? kalau nk ckp ngan Mr Najib Mokhtar, email add dia abong_stj@hotmail.com takyah le cc kami
semua….dah2 la tu…zaman tok adam dah cerita ni.. naik basi pun ada..tak lalu
dah…tak faham ke kami semua hari tu teraccident masukkan nama hang sekali dlm
email merapu kami? tak faham ke org mintak maaf a.k.a
sorry….

kalau hang bara ngan
email Mr Najib tu, hang sedaq tak email hang yang kat bawah ni seolah-olah
menghina kami semua? apa ingat kami ni duduk zaman batu ka tak tau
SKYPE or YM or
MSN???..  hang tulih panjang2 psl heli dgn tujuan apa? hang nk tunjuk kat kami
semua hang tau ka? manusia tk penah lari dr buat silap….tp kenal dgn org mcm
hang ni..laaagi la silap besaq bagi kami… sorry la aku tak tau hang sapa… tp
please please please dah-dah la tu…… kerja lain byk lagi dr nk layan email
hang ni…….!!!!!…."

it’s sounds like a really emotional reply. I found out that, she’s also one of the ‘chatters’ in the chain email.I don’t know her but she’s in Kulim,working in a very respectable international semiconductor company.

I guess my mistake is the best time for her  to have her revenge over my poyo email reply.She was waiting for this moment.It’s a pay back time for her..

I don’t want any confrontation over the email.I know it was my mistake before and i’m not the kind of guy who want to have a fight or debate with women.So,I replied personally to her saying that im sorry for CC her email.

Anyway, the lesson for today is,..don’t be rude over the email.Have courteous and be polite. Everything have their own karma.Good deeds and attitude will repay with good things and  vice versa.For me,i got backfired by my own bad attitudes.I had my karma.
