Here's the funny story. It may not be as funny to you guys, but that's ok. Before the severe weather arrived, I sent an email to the staff of KAIT. The email outlined the threat of severe weather so that everyone was prepared... in case we saw bad weather.
Apparently, someone decided to forward it to some folks outside of the station. By the end of the day, my email had been sent out to most of Northeast Arkansas. I didn't cuss in the email or talk bad about anyone, but I may have said a few things that I would not say to the general public. I try not to scare anyone while I'm on TV, but I do tell the staff the worst case scenarios when I send these emails out. This allows everyone to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
By the end of the day, almost every businessman, city official, fireman, and policeman had a copy. I had all kinds of people calling and emailing me about the email... SOOOO, I now have this disclaimer on my emails:
This e-mail is intended solely for the addressee. If you are not the addressee please do not read, print, re-transmit, store or act in reliance on it or any attachments. Instead, please email it back to the sender and then immediately permanently delete it.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the sender of this email, this communication may contain privileged or confidential information which is exempt from disclosure under English law and this information may not be used or disclosed except for the purpose for which it has been sent.
One of my coworkers saw my new disclaimer and said that I should have just put: "Don't forward this to anyone, stupid!"... I think I agree with her!
Anywho, next time I send out an email to the staff... you may get a copy too! :)
