Embarrassment Prevention Protocols

When you send a text message or email, do you fill in the message or the recipient first?

You can’t send without specifying both, but if you add a recipient and only write part of the message (e.g. missing attachments), you can accidentally send it. If you write a complete message and put in a recipient just before sending, you might send it to the wrong person, with potentially devastating results.

I tend to take the devastating route (message first).
