The Perils of Overrelying on Unsend

I just sent an e-mail where I referred to something or someone in mildy less-than-flattering terms.

Unfortunately, I had hit "reply" instead of "forward."


Exhibiting my lightning-fast reflexes, I picked up the phone, and ever so humbly asked the unintended recipient to delete the mail without reading it.

I don't know whether she truly hadn't read it yet, or is simply adhering to a polite fiction.
