I just got an email...

About this kid in a Utah school. Like it was all legit. They thought I was "Mr. and Mrs. Thomas". They were writing about this child with a learning disorder. And I was all like "What the fuck, what the fuck, what the fuck?" I checked the school out and it was legit. So now like, 50 faculty members of a school district out in Utah have my email address.

It's especially great that they fucked up and it's privileged information.

I just replied to everyone telling them that I live in Vermont, a place far, far away from Utah, that I was 16 and that my last name was not "Thomas", and that it is in fact, my first name.

Pretty funky, or at least I thought it was.

That's pretty weird...

That's pretty weird... I'd think it was a scam, but they're not asking for money or anything, so I guess they made a typo... ? I dunno, but it feels pretty strange when stuff like that happens... you temporarily get sucked into someone else's life...

Oh no, this was legit and

Oh no, this was legit and everything. I looked up the school district and it certainly exists.

I keep getting e-mails from

I keep getting e-mails from old professors--not, like personalized e-mails, but ones that indicate that they've somehow put me on their class aliases. So, last week I got the midterm for Psyc: Cognitions which I'm not enrolled in, and I was all...wtf? No. NO! I am not taking a third psych midterm!

Also, my English prof from my first semester here at school finally stopped sending me the e-mails that she would send out to English majors and the individual e-mails for all of the separate classes she teaches, none of which I was enrolled in--also, I've never been an English major.

I also get e-mails from people doing group assignments in other courses trying to pawn their work off on me and set up meeting times--yeah, no.

But...nothing exciting like your top secret privileged information.

I get constant e-mails from people writing to a guy who runs the juvenile court systems or somesuch in north carolina, because he thinks my e-mail address is his. I told him long ago about it and he said he thinks I'm mistaken and that his ISP said that was his e-mail, so I told him I'd reply for one month, then just delete stuff after that. I've deleted stuff for two years now, so I'm guessing he still gives people that e-mail address.
