Oh, how easy it is to misinterpret via email!

Interesting incident at work the other day.

Via email to a small group of people:

Me: 'Please can you have a quick look at the attached list of interview questions. Let me know if you want to make any changes – otherwise I will print them and put them in your interview packs.'

An unnamed respondent: 'I will take a look at the questions. However they should not be sent to the candidates as they should not be able to prepare answers beforehand!'

Me 'Of course I wouldn't send them to the candidates! I mean the interview packs for you (the panel)!'

Utter. Email. Silence.
