who is having a wedding thank you dinner next Saturday, you need to resend your email to the person who may have the initials d.k.
I know this is the most random post, but wouldn’t it be funny if a mis-sent email were from a fellow bee?
That’d be amusing.
So for the sake of not just having an announcement-thing, let’s share other mis-sent emails that make you giggle. 😀

Um, this isn’t very funny, but right after J left to go back to America this summer I wrote this looooooooooooong sappy “I miss you, I love you, I can’t wait until we’re together again” kind of wine induced email, but when I went to type in his name, gmail pulled up my old roommate’s email address (first 5 letters of their last names are the same, and same first initial), and I clicked too fast and *poof* it went to her.
It was awkward, because I haven’t talked to her in years, and I was like, “oh crap” so I had to send a follow up email being like, “please ignore that. I clicked the wrong address.”
she never responded, which I wasn’t sure how to take, hahaa…

This is less funny too but when I switched from my school email to new email, they were like this:
school: first initial last name @ school . edu
post-school first name middle initial last name @ gmail . com
BUT what did I put on my resume that I sent to multiple companies?
first initial last name @ gmail . com!!!!!!!!
I didn’t realize till I GOT AN INTERVIEW and she was like ok I’ll send you directions to ____ and I was like ummm that’s notttt my email.
I emailed the wrong address I had used, begging them to forward me any emails, but they never responded 🙁

I haven’t gotten any random e-mails (probably bc my last name is so unique) but I did get a phone call a few months ago from a number I didn’t recognize so I ignored it. Later I noticed that I had a voicemail from the same number and though I considered just deleting it, I decided to listen.
It was some guy calling for a guy friend of his to tell him all about the “totally awesome” weekend he’d had in Vegas. This message was about five minutes and included him talking about sleeping with an escort and hoping that his girlfriend wouldn’t find out and a few, um, really personal details that I really didn’t need to know!
After some debating, I called him back and the call went to vm. I left him a message that basically said “um, I don’t know who you were trying to reach but you didn’t get him and you might want to make sure you have the right number before you leave such a personal message.” I never heard back from him so hopefully he got the right number!

Haha, phedre that’s great.
I’m reminded of the time I was teaching my friend how to use/check his room voicemail, and there was a similar message. Followed by another message along the lines of “I’ve got the Playboys and some beer, give me a call”.
