Accidental e-mail at work?

How am I known at my job? I think I'm known as the person who will try their damn best to get whatever needs to be done done. I try to make every one's life easier.

Well, here we talk about an individual. I receive an e-mail concerning an attempt to get something accomplished by another department. Now the individual contacted the other department which is usually my job, so I am thinking that her request was probably shut down because the person didn't care. So, I write back saying let me communicate and work my magic to get this done. Now, I know what needs to be done is important in our eyes, the other department doesn't understand that, but it's my job to express it. So, I write back an e-mail proposing a solution which includes communicating with the same person that shut them down at first to see what I can do and that I will HANDLE it from here, so they can sit back and relax. What do I get in return? This is what I get: an e-mail in return that clearly was NOT suppose to be sent to me, b*tching about ME! Stating that what's the problem with me not understanding.....

Ummm hello... I am making your life easier by doing it all by myself and taking it off your hands!!! So annoying..

AND, this person talks with a European accent, but they are not even from Europe, have ever lived in Europe.. they are from California... can we say FAKE!

The joys of working with people who have big ego's and the fakest personalities ever....

I can't even tell you how many times this has happened to me - I work with students, and some of them haven't yet figured out how to work the reply vs reply ALL feature. Did you call her out on it? I always do... hahaha.

I did call her out on it in a professional way... let's just say I did not receive an e-mail back so i'm sure she's feeling pretty dumnb right now.
