I work as a junior web designer, one of two people in charge of my company's internet and intranet sites. My supervisor routes all the day-to-day intranet updates through me so I get several emails a day to make small changes or to upload various Word or Powerpoint documents. I don't even look at most of the documents I post because I don't know anything about the products.

A co-worker emails me a Word document to upload to the intranet. I do so promptly and email her back to let her know it's done.

Her: The links in the document look all ugly. (Read: They're appearing as the full URLs instead of linked text.)

Me: Oh, sorry...I just posted what you sent me. (Thinking: You wrote the document, didn't you notice this before?)

Her: Oh, I thought you were going to fix it.

Yes, I'm going to check a document that I know nothing about and make changes that I -guess- should be made. That will go over well I'm sure, especially when every employee in the company will see it.

It wouldn't be so bad if my supervisor and myself didn't have to reiterate this over and over again to the same group of people.
