IT PAYS to check your tech settings before embarking on an office training session, as the embarrassed folk at the US Embassy in Canberra recently discovered.
An email titled simply “Meeting” was erroneously distributed to the embassy’s entire database, with a photo of a pajama-wearing cat in a blue Cookie Monster outfit holding a plate of choc chip biscuits attached.
The caption, “Cat PajamaJam” appeared underneath, asking recipients to RSVP.
After a good chuckle, the invitation was withdrawn.
What a cat-astrophe.
