I normally call the people who mis-send me email, but I love the idea of simply cancelling the reservation. You sir, are a hero. I think the best one I ever got was to a posh Las Vegas bachelor party. After chatting with the group about not being the Allen they thought I was, they suggested that I come instead because I was more amusing. Alas, I couldn't. But had I still been single....

Haha, that sounds awesome :D

I have no such luck. Mine are rarely all that entertaining. At best I get a boring, "So sorry about that!" type response. At worst I get, "SCREW YOU WHY YOU DONT JUST IGNORE WHAT A JERK LIKE YOU NEVER MADE A MISTAKE" or something along those lines. Most of the time I simply get no response, so I stopped responding except on rare occasion when it seems innocent enough.

This one was sweet, actually, and from someone who's mis-emailed me before, too. I'll include my reply and her response as well. Note she has a typo in her address book entry regardless.

I'm flattered, but surely you meant to send this to someone else, right?

I know, right? Surely it was some sort of test, not part of the dharma initiative.

You should pitch the "we will die" memo to the makers of Silent Hill, would make a great Umbrella Corporation episode.

Hi 9th grade parents. Invitations to the 9th grade formal were mailed last week. I have attached the consent
form in case you did not receive one.

Please let your children know that they do not need to have a date to attend!

We will need parent volunteers for chaperones that evening from 8-11pm. Please email
Lori Cooper ( jamcooper@me.com) if you are interested.

This is not a school sponsored event...more of a tradition. We need volunteers to make
it happen!

Thanks,
<Name>
It's good that my kid doesn't need a date to attend. I could imagine that being awkward.
I have replied to all of these, every time saying "THAT'S NOT ME", but alas nothing being done.

Haha I love it. At the moment I'm having a conversation with a group of old people in Florida who are part of a Croquet and Coffee Club. I'm trying to convince them to disband. Nobody has questioned why I'm part of the conversation.
