An Awks Story: The Boss and The Accidental Emoji.

It pays to check before you send! Megan shared on the Drive show with Nathan that she had quite the ahem mishap with her boss recently where she accidentally sent a ‘kissing face’ emoji in a basic work text. But what do you do when this happens and how to do you come out of it unscathed?

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff!

OK, you’ve sent the text, you’re here. Don’t stress, this is where we can always blame good ol’ autocorrect for adding in the extra ‘XX’. However, the emoji may need to be explained further! Acknowledge the message by saying that you meant to add a ‘smile’ emoji – still not quite professional, but a lot less embarrassing!

2. Laugh it off

It’s the most natural thing in the world to send an emoji, it’s almost as common as the words and letters itself. However, you can’t quite hide the the fact that ‘kissing’ face is super weird to send to your boss. Next time you see your boss, laugh it off and then move on! Dwelling = Drowning, get in and get out of that sticky-sitch.

3. What if that doesn’t work?

Have you got kids? Nieces or nephews? Say they had your phone – BOOM! Pass that buck, you’re welcome!
