Man Tells He’s Taking a Sick Day. Colleagues Make Him A Shrine

It’s difficult to tell someone that you’re sick over the phone. Sending an email is an easier and better option. That’s what local TV reporter Nick Vasas did a few days ago. He decided to email a few of his colleagues to let them know he wasn’t going to work that day.

Unfortunately for Nick, he made a monumental blunder leading to a flood of concerned emails, a shrine being created and the hashtag #PrayersForNick being widely used on Twitter.
Instead of telling the handful of colleagues who would be affected by his absence, the traffic reporter for Kansas City FOX4 accidentally emailed the thousands and thousands of employees of the entire company, made up of stations across the country, using the 'breaking news' contact list.
Employees were then bombarded with 'reply all' responses with concerns for Nick as well-wishers sent their 'thoughts and prayers' from as far as Buffalo and Las Vegas.

Some however, did not see the humorous side of what happened.

What are your thoughts about this one?
