Help -one Of My Bosses Said I Should Never Send Him A Mail Again


I am currently in deep shit. I happen to work as an analyst with the overall manager of a company in Kaduna . I am a data guy and not really a Manger,not interested in being one either. Today, We needed information from the branch managers,3 of them to be precise. I was tasked with
ensuring they send the information on time.

I got a mail from the Regional office threatening to carry out disciplinary action if they didnt send the information. From the mail I got to find out our State is the only one that hasnt sent theirs.

So I sent a reminder to the Branch Managers requesting urgently for the said inputs, I told them the delay was becoming quite embarassing to the state and we need to send this information out urgently.

To my surprise a branch manager called me and clearly told me I shouldnt send him such mails again, he said I insulted his office and I can tell my boss what he said.

Fellas, Nairalanders, this is frustrating, i know I have issues with the way I dish out mails and I always sound too straight forward.

I feel like resigning, maybe it's not really my thing. I need advice on how to handle this issue before they probably gang up against me.

Someone help me push to FP

Hello good day OP, I guess you where to direct and since you know he is your boss you probably should have chosen your words carefully, and also hit the nail on the head without sounding rude. My advice write him a short mail and apologize for the way you addresed the first mail that you where under alot of stress, Do not say pressure as that is one of those things that is supposed to make you better even in decision making that's one of the reason you where employed anyways.

Some of us have been there..... cheesy cheesy

Email and diplomacy. A less touted but significant part of office politics.

You want to email a Boss and lick his ass, while not letting the guy(s) in copy of the email know that you are a complete asshole licker cheesy cheesy

I can assume your email was offensive and disrespectful. There is a way you call people out in a subtle and gentle manner.....learn it, it will help you wink

Does he have power to sack you. if No,Worst he can do is assess you low during appraisal. Do your job with no fear, however with language caution

How can u just an ordinary data guy compel a manager, u re lucky he can't sack you else by now u would be seeking for a job.
The mail u made is quite disrespectful nd the tone was more of they don't know their job.

U ve a boss right Nd u ve heard of chain of command right.

Let ur boss know nd he would do the needful.

Even if u know the job better, don't outshine ur boss else ur career path would be full of torn.

Like someone said apologize to him, stating you didn't mean to be rude or disrespect his office.
Forthwith I would advise you be be more diplomatic when sending mails to people especially when others are in the copy.

lol... Tell him fvck you!!

Who do Bosses think they are?

I am always in hot argument with my line manager, that he had to go inform the MD. I was served a query, and I practically stated that I wasn't sorry for my action!!

You know what? Give me his number... I can tell him fvck you on your behalf.

Bro, if you are rude, you are rude. Perhaps u should work on your attitude, I understand u av a deadline but u should apply wisdom when talking to your superiors, man up and apologize if indeed u were being rude....if u resign and not change ur attitude, u will still experience the same thing in your next job.

Why do you want to resign? Is the man not an employee as well?

Just work on your language and be more civil in sending mails to ur superiors.

That's all.

You are spot on... OP should learn to do more of calls than mails.. People react differently to both cos of their implications that differ in impact.

you were too direct you said it yourself, mails n texts are sensitive and could easily be misinterpreted so next time you dish out a mail especially to your superior who normally take respect highly be sure be sure to polish in a way to suit their ego.
