Email and Lawyers

Do you ever use email to distribute minutes of meetings? Watch out -- what may seem perfect for days can blow up in your face, especially if someone in your distribution list is a lawyer.

That's the problem with email -- people read it and form different perceptions. The early stage is oh-so-nice and oh-so-charming because people think they've been understood. Then as the days go by and different email messages fly back and forth, it soon becomes painfully evident that there was a miscommunication somewhere.

You weren't privy to that info?


So why'd you minute it?

Because you mentioned it during the meeting. I simply wrote down what you said.

Then I shouldn't have talked to you????

Uhm. Please save your time. Talk straight to the source of the info.

You have NO idea what you're talking...

Sigh. I've learned my lesson: Discuss the minutes in person and not via email.
