A TV news reporter in Kansas City accidentally emailed every single person in his company instead of just his boss to call in sick, and not only did his entire company respond with “get well soon” messages, but the whole Internet jumped in on the hilarity.
WDAF’s Nick Vasos was apparently not feeling very well and emailed his boss to take Friday off. Unfortunately, he hit replay all to an email in his inbox that contained the email addresses of personnel from over 200 TV stations, and not just his boss.
His simple sick call email ended up getting the employees of 200 stations to begin sending him emails wishing him to “get well soon.”

Nexstar media, WDAF’s parent corporation, eventually put an end to all the frivolity, but not before the whole meme began to leak outside the company and onto the meme-happy Internet.
But maybe the funniest part is that the mass email he hit “reply all” on didn’t even have his own coworkers on it!
Nick soon tweeted out his mae culpa:
But soon enough the whole world was jumping in on the fun to offer get well soon wishes to Vasos with the “#PrayersForNick” hashtag.
