The Regional Director called today and asked if I would be attending the company xmas party. (tomorrow night, requiring a 250 mile drive and overnite stay)
I replied, “What party?”
The R.D. expressed surprise that I hadn’t received the email. They then forwarded the original email, albeit with all the header information “stripped”.
Sparing you the details, I was left off the original email list. I know this because I later called a co-worker and had them forward me a copy of the original email they received.
Based on experience there went my only opportunity for any seasonal activity.
