Default Work issues

Has anyone else ever found themselves in an angry volley of emails with another employee?

I found myself in a heated battle today and (stupidly) allowed it to continue longer than I should have. Was just wondering if anyone else has been there.

Not very professional.

The owner of my company likes to send out emails calling out individuals and sometimes even using abusive language. These are typically CC'ed to the rest of the company as well. I wonder why turnover is always so high here.

The only upside is that once he's done being angry, it's like he was never even mad in the first place.

Damn. Yea, we have a high turnover rate too. I liken it to a college football team.

I work in the engineering department and we're constantly being hounded by our sales department. I got into it with a sales guy (they think they're our priority. He was miffed to find out I don't feel the same).

What the hell are you doing? How dare you get into it over electronic media! Don't you know it never can be deleted. I am very concerned about your piss poor attitude.

CC everybody

where I work if you have a problem with somebody you just bitch about it behind their back. The problem builds and builds until you find yourself blindfolded and holding a pugil stick listening to the chants of "fight fight fight"

Yes... yes I have.

I always prefer email, because then I have a written record. I am able to keep my professionalism, while simultaneously jabbing back. At one point, I pulled out over a hundred emails, to show what I had done (to solve problem "x")... which also displayed that the person with whom I'd been arguing with was completely culpable.

The second one slanders, your "ass is grass." But, like I said, there are ways of retorting without being unprofessional... because, I never let anyone walk all over me.

It's an art.

Precisely.

My "opponent" isn't too smart either.
