Now, i face the "repercussions" of having the email address bearing a common name, which could be the landing account / default for mis-spelling of firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com...
First, i got this email from Maxis reminding me "to pay outstanding bills" (and i am not a maxis customer). And thanks to the "no-reply" email that i COULD NOT tell Maxis that they've got the wrong person!
Then, a PTPTN email confirming "my" application...complete with personal details...
Next, is from a beauty company...
Then, from a bank...(no PIN number there :) )
Today, a quotation from a wedding planner...(wow, weddings do cost a lot - @ RM35 per guest!!)
A few personal emails with attachment for work groups etc.
Not to mention promotional emails which are all junk.
And request to confirm that "I" actually create an email account, twitter account and whatnots which i didn't.
So far, no interesting emails and all so boring. he he...
No wonder people have funny email addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Rest assured, their friends won't salah hantar email to someone else. :)
And, all the intended recipients bearing the name "norxxxxx"s are actually of different binti's.....
My poor email a/c is a bakul for at least 2-3 people...
And since i don't have their actual email addresses, there's no way for me to tell my fellow Nurxxxxxs" to be more careful.
I always manage with just a short reply of "Sorry, you've got the wrong email address" to the sender.
Most people i replied to did not reply back.
Like when you tell someone on the phone, they've got the wrong number and the caller just hang up?
Talk about courtesy.
*Just before i publish this, just got a nice message from the wedding planner.
Glad, there's still hope for some manners in this country...:)
Anyways, sorry tauke, i am long married. May be for my children in 10 years' time? :)
But, a RM35/guest wedding?
