KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMOX) - The latest reminder to double-check your emails before hitting send comes to us courtesy of Nick Vasos of Kansas City's FOX4, who sent a note calling in sick to work on Friday to an entire network of TV stations. 

His email was meant to be seen by just a few managers, but instead went to the inboxes of employees at nearly 200 stations across the U.S. owned by Nexstar Media Group. The email thread was getting so many replies that the company had to shut it down. 

You actually broke the internet, @NickVasos https://t.co/FrQhQZcYMj

Possibly the best part is that the note never even made it to his bosses at FOX4, according to the news station.

But the other stations and all of Twitter have been fun since the email was sent on Thursday, as "#NickStrong" and "#PrayersForNick" are trending Friday morning:
