Sometimes people get drunk or just tired late at night and send phone texts or emails and even make blog comments that in the cold hard light of day they regret sending. They desperately want to retrieve the message. Cannot be done.
I learnt this years ago at my own cost and some embarrassment. But then sometimes it can work, a message written when fuelled by the demon drink or emotion to say things you might be reticent about in the harsh daylight. Generally in my own case, I don't have regrets. But then I have never told my boss that he is a prick and to go eff himself.
Last night just before dropping off, I composed a nice text message to someone, ready to send after review the next morning. Write at night and review and send the next day. I accidently sent the message, and upon review, it was fine. He replied. Where I mucked up was in my following message apologising for sending the text message late at night. I said way much more than I should have, but I think it will be ok. I think he will get the thing about tall handsome Sikh men.
Just reinforcing to myself, do not click send or publish late at night or after a couple drinks, no matter how smart you think you are or how well written you think you are.
