Not-So-Sweet 16 Game 3: Boss CC Sneak Attack vs. Over-Forwarding image

Welcome back to the Not-So-Sweet 16! Today, we have two powerhouse email competitors that vie for the enviable title of “most annoying email habit.” Which do you think is worse, sneaky CCs or mass forwards?

Boss CC Sneak Attack:

Occasionally, there is a reason to CC your manager on an email about a project or issue you’re working on. This is not one of those times. The “sneak attack” occurs when someone adds your boss to a thread in order to intimidate you or encourage a specific outcome. Not cool.

Over-Forwarding:

We all know the panic of opening your email and seeing a message with a subject that reads “Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: Action Items.” Passing the buck, whether in-person or over email, is never fun, and somehow over-forwarding makes an already uncomfortable situation worse.
