Blown Away

Oops, something's gone wrong on Planet Dom

The Spice booking system was the bane of our working lives. We would send out joining instructions for each event but there was no way of previewing an email prior to sending it, so we were in effect sending it out ‘blind’. Mistakes were a regular occurrence and a high proportion of our time was spent on damage control; trying to explain to confused members as to why they’d received an email bearing no significance to the events they had booked onto.

One such error resulted in Dom posting on Facebook:

Oops, just sent an email for Ten Pin Bowling tonight for the ‘Blowing Alley’, rather than the ‘Bowling Alley’

This prompted some cheeky responses:

Jonathan: “On the other hand…”

Jane: “This could be a totally different kind of event!”

Sue: “Dom’s blown it!”

Mark: “OMG!!! You can get arrested for less!”

Carol: “Do they know what they’ve let themselves in for?”

Alex: “I’m sure that wasn’t in the event write-up!”

Andy: “Are there any spaces left?”

  1. Your right, it did make me smile! Especially the ‘Andy’ comment. If you want something that make you smile have a look at my blog I’m a hula hooping clown 🙂
