Sending the person you are talking about an IM

Happened to me at work this week.
The most embarrassing and awkward experiences in my professional career.
Felt sick when I realised what I did.

At work we have an IM program.
I typed ''I don't know if it's just me but I think Jason is pissed off at me''.
Instead of sending that to who it was intended for it was sent to Jason.
He replied with ''You do realise you sent it to me''.
I tried to save my self by replying "it was meant for you, typed your name is instead of 'you are'.
I spoke to him a few hours later (we are in separate offices on the same level of the building), went over there and apologised and told him I feel he is pissed off at me but he said he isn't and he admitted he chuckled at my error.

    Funny thing is you said you feel that he is pissed off at you. You didn't say "He is an asshole and he should get fired" or something. So you kind of uttered that you feel something is wrong in the way you two get along, but you didn't say it's his fault. So I think you shouldn't feel abad about it. Or do I understand that wrong?

    Reading IM reminded me of the Stasi, IMs were the Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter, the inofficial employees, who would spy on people and report whatever they got to know.
    Be glad your only problem is that you mentioned that you are having a weird feeling about what somebody might think about you ;) You even apologized!
    And I think it's good to let people know how you feel. But that might just be my German nature :lol:

    Don't talk shit about coworkers

    Don't use company systems to do so

    Yeah that is what my colleagues told me, it's probably a good thing because then he can realise his attitude has been different lately.
