mistachment

I wanna put a new word into the English dictionary:

"mistach" - verb: to send two emails - one right after the other, with the first one containing the sentence "please see attachment" or similar, and the second one containing "oops, forgot the attachment, heh heh heh" or something to the same effect. This act is usually accompanied by an exasperated exclamation right after hitting the first email's "Send" button.

e.g. sentence: "People are freakin mistaching a lot nowadays... yeah, me too."

Sorry, you can't have first rights to the creation of that word. See http://www.eku.edu/onlinelearning/mistachment.htm.

again, another brainchild of mine turned out to be reinvention of the wheel...

Mr Kleppinger, would you prefer me to take down this post, or, since people can still read the comments, are you fine with it as it is?

I think it's cool to leave it here so more people can see that we both think it's a good idea.
