I get a lot of wrong email for other Jessicas at one of my Gmail accounts.
Sometimes, especially from professional work places, I reply and let them know they reached the wrong Jessica.
Sometimes I just delete. I’ve found with personal emails, it’s almost impossible to get someone to delete a contact. My address auto-fills or someone hits reply-all and no matter how many times I request omission, I know about Aunt Mary’s hospital stay and the 8th grade hockey trip fundraising.
Starting last night, I have been receiving emails from a lover of another Jessica. She is maybe cheating on her husband with whom she also works? The lover wanted to visit her at work and asked if “dumb ass” was there. The lover also has some sort of love interest/female companion besides Jessica.
I have neither replied nor deleted. I am too intrigued to delete and the only replies I’ve constructed in my mind make digs at his grammar.
I have received 3 emails in less than 24-hours. This is like a cross between electronic Burma shave advertising and a soap opera subscription. Each time I learn a little more and get drawn in further.
So far I know he’s aware she did not receive his morning email but he doesn’t know why. He doesn’t want her (the other one), he wants her (Jessica) and only her. He calls her baby doll and he got a car tag so he can drive legally until the 14th when his insurance will lapse.
I don’t want to reply to him. I want to reply to HER.
Dear Other Jessica,
You can do better.
What’s your take on this? Am I going to hell for not giving this guy a heads up he can’t type an email address correctly? Or am I within my rights to just ignore it? I mean, as long as I don’t enjoy the drama TOO much of course…
