Today, after returning to work from a week-long sickness, I sent out an apologetic email to all of my clients to explain my lack of communication due to absence. I realised afterwards I had put the subject line as 'Absense'. And sent it to all of my clients. FML

Still a very important topic to talk about OP.

At least you didn't type Absinthe

Hey, it is St. Patrick's Day

just a typo op, you'll be fine

Always check important emails before you send them

when they reply just put a quick line apologising for the typo. no big deal. if your messages are usually full of good grammar and spelling they'll know it was just a mistake. (:

Absense means nothing, it's a simple typo why is that a FML?

After spending who knows how long writing and reviewing something, small errors like this can be missed because your brain is hyper aware of what you meant, and automatically corrects it as you read. Meaning you think you did things right until you take a break and come back to it, which isn't an option in some cases, like when the document you are writing is an apology for your already troubling lack of communication.

It's a spelling mistake everyone makes them you don't need to find an excuse for it.

Not to mention it's spelled "absence" in the US as well.
