Wow, someone still uses actual travel agents? I suppose if anyone isn't going to understand their own email address it would be someone that still uses a travel agent.

I take it you haven't been to New Zealand.

I still use a travel agent, and I'm in the UK.
It's a hell of a lot easier to wander in and ask about which European cities I could easily fly to from Birmingham and then book a short break than it is to try and work that out myself, and the prices I've paid really aren't that different to what I might find online.

Pffh, that's really difficult. It's much easier to go and spend time talking to a stranger.

I've had another couple of these. The first was a lengthy email from someone at a bank as he'd arranged a mortgage appointment with Ross Taylor. He was detailing all the documents he needed to bring and also signed me up for their secure file transfer service. I replied and told him that he had the wrong Ross.

Today I've been signed up to Netflix. The other Ross Taylor is paying £9.99 for this and I can see his card details. They're different to mine which is reassuring but still, it's weird. I've logged into his account and can see a mobile number. I'm going to contact him tomorrow and let him know.

£9.99 means he's on the premium plan, which means he can have people watching from different IPs. Just go ahead and use his Netflix.

Errr, I think you mean, "go ahead and share his Netflix." Right?

Keep skipping ahead 2 episodes so everything gets spoilered.

You can set up multiple log-ins for users on Netflix. Just set up one called "Wrong email, dude"

Find the name of his dead grandfather, add that name as a profile and then add all the old cowboy films they used to watch together to the queue.

That other guy who has the same name as me has signed up for an account on Wish.com.

So far, I've received about 8 emails a day from them with special offers. This is getting annoying.

Oh.. and he's also cancelled his Netflix account.

Today I have received an email asking me to supply a reference for a lady whom I have never heard of.

Of course, she's going to get an absolutely glowing reference!

Great at working in teams, adapted to new people really well, cleaned the jizz up after filming without having to be asked.
