Shockingly Unprofessional

This was in my inbox this morning. It was sent to a potential client from the network coordinator. I guess the potential client and the network coordinator didn’t hit it off.

 “I am instructing the editors in my network to dump your haughty ass. You will not be working with any of our editors. Please take your business to a third world country.”

Wow. I’m kind of speechless. At first, I didn’t notice the To field on the email and for a brief second I thought I was being canned by the network.

    Wow. I love hearing this kind of dirt happen in a professional setting when it doesn’t involve me. It’s like slowing down to rubberneck a freeway accident.

    I’d guess they don’t get along so well. Just a guess, mind you…

    I think it’s all the more shocking because of the word choice on a site for editors. The network coordinator must have been ready to spit nails to use those words. Wow. And (maybe) lucky for you, you don’t have to work with the potential haughty-ass client…
