Don’t Be a CC:wad

If you have to send a condescending/rude/not nice email to a coworker in another department, think twice before you cc: the coworker’s boss. You might find yourself on the receiving end of a scalding reply from your coworker’s boss–with YOUR manager ON THE TO: LINE.

It’s common courtesy and business etiquette here, folks, and this is a pretty easy way to affix a huge red target on your own back.

If, on the other hand, you’re NOT a complete wad, and you want to write something nice/complimentary/un-wadlike to someone and copy his/her boss, do so with my blessing.
