Couple quit jobs over saucy emails
An embarrassed couple have quit their jobs after their explicit emails about their love life became an internet sensation.
Melanie Anderson, a receptionist at an oil industry services company in Aberdeen, accidentally forwarded the intimate exchange with fiance Eric Knisz to their entire office.
It happened when she sent a short email to her colleagues at Integrated Subsea Services (ISS) Ltd to tell them that the sandwich van was outside.
Unfortunately, she accidentally wrote the message on top of the chain of private emails she had been swapping with Mr Knisz.
Within hours the email had gone viral, spreading first to other oil firms in Aberdeen and then to the rest of the world, prompting a series of jokes on Twitter with the hashtag #sandwichvan.
In the private messages, Miss Anderson wrote: " I totally fancy you," to which her fiance replied: "I love making love to you it's ace."
Bruce Webster, human resources director at ISS, said the couple were "absolutely mortified".
He added: "While the couple involved made a silly mistake, they did not do anything malicious or unlawful and have therefore not been disciplined. Regrettably they have chosen to resign.
"We are however dealing seriously with the issue of the email going outwith our organisation and reinforcing our policies in relation to this."
Miss Anderson and Mr Knisz, who are due to get married later this year, have not commented publicly.
what do you think?
A few years ago I accidentally sent a rude joke to all users at work. :(
Yes I seen this happen before and they get what they deserve. We had three senior managers go one morning at eight am, after sending an email round about one of the biggest customers. Why didn't they check the contact list for the email before they sent including the customer. High Salaries, company cars lost and no references! Serve them right. We than had to heal the rift with the customer because if we had lost them ten others would have been redundant!
This doesnt appeal to your sense of humour then wick
Isn't that what home breakers do !!

"I love making love to you it's ace" Jeez, his sex talk could do with some work!
Thrilling wasn't it. She's a lucky, lucky girl!
why would anyone email colleagues that the sandwich van is outside? what's wrong with shouting? actually someone daft enough to exchange explicit messages on their work email account clearly lacks some basic common sense...
well know everybody knows as they've been named so might as well kept their jobs
