Subject: Was I Wrong?
I am receiving many e-mails from our colleagues stating how they are offended by the e-mail I sent out yesterday. I thought it was funny, and evidently, others just canâ€™t take a joke. So far, I have refused to respond to any of their e-mails, hoping that by ignoring them, they would let it go. But now, I am wondering if I should apologize. What do you think?
In your Discussion Board post, including the following:
- Was your subordinate wrong?
- Should he apologize? If so, how should this be done? If not, why not?
- What advice would you provide this person to prevent the situation from happening again?
