Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person.

Conversation in the office yesterday:

New Girl: ‘My company K class didn’t show up on Tuesday.’
Bossman: ‘They sent an email at 11:00 saying that they couldn’t attend class.’
NG: ‘AT 11:00? AND I WASN’T TOLD ABOUT IT?’ [Her class is at 15:00]
BM: ‘We didn’t get it til 16:00.’
NG: 'Oh.'

BM managed to get around NG, but what he really meant was that in the five hour period between the message being sent and received, neither Secretary from Hell nor Young Secretary had checked the email.
