So sorry I called you a dingdong

Today, I sent a draft email to my boss. The receptionist, thinking they were being helpful, forwarded it straight to the client. It's not ready for the client. I mean, it is NOT ready for the client. Really, really not ready for the client. FML

This is like a sandwich without the filling. *Why* wasn't it ready for the client? Was it full of placeholders that needed filling it, errors that needed to be proofed and fixed, or did you include banter about the client's especially plump derrière and your desire to court such a fine maiden? Or perhaps it had yet to be converted into a cipher to protect it from being intercepted by a hostile nation. We must know!

Receptionist should be fired. Thats not their job to act on behalf of their boss

Is it in the job description of the receptionist to do such things, or did this person overstep? It’s hard to form a rational opinion without more details.

I feel like the job title kind of says it all there. I have never known any receptionist that was supposed to unilaterally send anything to a place they hadn't been told to. In fact most if they had thought that's why their boss' other employee sent it to them would have been "I am their receptionist not yours"
