Over the past year, I’ve gotten emails at my main email address (the one with my slightly peculiarly spelled name as the root of it) from various businesses in Australia. Each time, I reply, telling them that I’m not the person that they think I am. Each time, I’ve gotten an apologetic email back, saying how sorry they are for taking up my time and stating that they’ll delete my email from their system. I’ve often been sorry that I wasn’t who they thought I was, because they’ve all been so very nice about it.
But let me list what I’ve apparently missed out on by not being the me Down Under…
1) I didn’t buy a Range Rover.
2) I didn’t go on a luxury vacation to what looked like a fantastic resort in New Zealand (I’m still longing over this one!).
3) I didn’t buy a Jaguar.
and 4) I didn’t have plumbing work done on my house (the latest email).
When the plumber wrote back, she was not only nice about it, she had me laughing. I’d explained a bit about how often I get these emails, you see, and what I’ve been missing out on, so she replied, “Have a great time in your new cars and also on your fantastic trip away! lol”.
It makes me wish I did live there, just so I could call that plumber and give them some business!
