I got a backstabbing e-mail at work today...wouldn't have been so bad if it hadn't been addressed to several other people, too. Good thing I have the documentation to back myself and my position up.

Oh yes, nothing sneaky or sideways about it.

I posted this in the funnies thread but it probably fits better here.

I'm sitting outside my 35th high school reunion. It's a multi-year gathering & I think I've talked to everyone I know. The band just started and I can hear it half way across the parking lot. The committee picked today for the reunion because our school mascot is Blackcats.
My back is starting to bother me & I don't tolerate very loud places well. It was loud enough with everyone just visiting without the band. I think I'm heading home early.

You be sneaky and sideway's no way, no how. That was a rude thing to have happen and they deserve what they get.

Have you booked in to see your dentist?
I go to see him Wednesday. Today he called in some antibiotics and 800 mg IBUprofin. The pain I had today actually put me in tears so I better not put this off any longer!

Probably someone jealous of your supreme awesomeness! I hate people who do stuff like that.

Back when I was roommates and friends, but not sweeties, with my now, ex DH he had a Friday the 13th incident.

He pulled out of an alley onto a biggish street and misjudged the speed of the approaching car. His car was, as a friend put it, smashed to ratshit. He didn't have insurance and was definitely at fault. Damage to the other car was covered by the uninsured drivers fund.

However, there was good luck too. Normally this man always wore his seat belt. This one time he didn't. He has no idea why he didn't put on his seat belt. The drivers side of the car was completely crushed. Since he wasn't wearing a seat belt, he was pushed into the passenger side of the car and was uninjured. He might not have survived if he had been belted in. It's not often that it's better not to wear a seat belt.

I'm still not sure why she even did it...there was no rhyme or reason to it. Like I said, if she had not made it public, there would have been no problem, but since she did, I have to protect myself.
