Upping The Incompetencity

Another short but sweet beauty. Did no one at Rough Trade think it was worth telling Ms Walton that you should put people's private email addresses in the BCC column, not the CC column? The reader who received this - a few days after the email about The Long Blondes that remains in the subject line - was surprised to find every email that the Rough Trade PR department have on their database laid out before them. Alongside theirs. Still, it's more friendly that way, right?

And who's Nick Hennessy? I still don't know. If you can't be bothered to format an email correctly, I certainly can't be bothered to waste any time on your two-bits acts. Or, as the reader has it:

Don't you just shake your head in bafflement that PRs can keep their jobs when they can't perform the most basic of basic aspects of it? It kind of makes me fume, just as it does with writers - you KNOW there are hundreds of people who'd kill for that job and could do it 50 times better. The frightening thing is, even though Roxy's managed to squeeze in one huge error into a such a small space - she's pluralised the poor guy when there's presumably only one of him - I still know of even more more hapless PRs than her...
