A few weeks ago when I was sick (I work from home so I can safely work while sick), I got an email from a guy named Anthony. I’d never heard from him before, but he’s a client of a client. He emailed asking me to bill them directly instead of billing my client (this was approved by my client). I replied to him saying that’d be fine.
A little while later I wrote a wrap-up of a big project, and sent it to my other client, who also is named Anthony. I just typed “ant…” in the TO field and Eudora filled in the rest.
A couple days later I was a little miffed at why Anthony didn’t respond to my wrap-up. I had questions in there and stuff.
Then I got an email from my client from the first paragraph. (I just realized HE is Anthony too. Only he goes by Tony, thank Og) He sent me a forward from his client, Anthony, with a PDF attached.
The PDF was a printout of my mis-sent email, on it was written “I don’t know what this is?” He sent the PDF to Tony and typed “What is this?” Then Tony forwarded it to me, just saying “Hey I think you sent this to the wrong person.”
Anyway the point of my story is that this guy got an email he didn’t recognize, printed it out, wrote on it, scanned it to PDF and sent the PDF to someone who is basically a 3rd party to ask “What is this?” Instead of just ignoring or replying to the original goof.
And that’s the weirdest thing I’ve seen all year.
