Andrew's knee is worse than first hoped, and he's been signed off for another 4 weeks. Neil has had to rework the oncall rota to cover his shifts. Thanks everyone for covering!

Stewart, Teresa and David have all offered to cover Andrew's shifts. Also, there are bloody dozens of Chaplains attached to the Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust. I'm astounded there is that much Chaplaincy that needs doing.

Due to increasing family commitments Michelle has decided to step down from her role as Honourary Chaplain. It seem her previous experience as a mental health nurse was very valuable to the team.

All the best Michelle!

I don't know any of these people, but I do find this little insight into their lives to be strangely compelling. It's like a nano-soap opera, or reality TV but actually real and not inflated to fill hours and hours of scheduling. Or social media, but without the filtering and curation.

This is it! A little view into a world I'm totally not a part of.

Also, they've been able to double the availability of Muslim chaplains. Thank you Mirza and Aklima for agreeing to take on the extra hours!

I've had an email this morning from a company in Australia asking if I would like them to pay their invoice yet?

It's a long chain of emails so how they just decided I should be part of it, I don't know. Still... Don't mind me, just going to go and figure out how I can get them to pay the $3500 into my bank account.

Don't forget to add an admin fee, and perhaps a late payment penalty!

My good friend David Paz from North Carolina has once again signed me up for something accidentally.

This time it appears to be Walmart.com and he's bought a shiny new Smart TV in a Black Friday deal.

Good luck picking it up, Dave!

I have full access to this guy's Walmart account with a live credit card attached. You'd think he'd double check the email address.

I often get access to people's accounts in a similar manner and my usual go to is to edit their name to say "wrong email address"

When they turn up for their appointments I hope the shop will tell them.

Them: 2.30.
Dentist: Hmm, no, sorry, that's an appointment for a Mr. Email-Address.

Order him something and add a delivery note to say "Check your email, fuckwit"

Bonus points for it being a sex toy of some variety

The most exciting thing I ever received by mistake in my email box (my work one) was wayyyy back many years ago, I got an email meant for someone with a very similar name as me that was, at the time, working at the same organisation. I was asked to approve some appraisals or renew contracts, or something along those lines, for a couple of nurses. As it was in a professional context there was not any mischief nor even any jokes. Cor, how boring.

Good news Everybody! David was able to pick up his TV from Walmart Supercenter in Charlotte, NC at 7:44pm (just shy of the 8pm deadline!) and he took out the 4 year coverplan for a very reasonable $36.

Still got the wrong email though

Ooh, I wonder if he works at the Nascar hall of Fame.

Mr Paz (US Branch) has just bought himself a PS5 in a Black Friday deal. $50 off! What a deal! Maybe I should order him a few games to go with it?

Someone is trying to sign up for a Government Gateway account on my email address. It would be nice if they were just going to pay my tax bill, but I suspect shenanigans.
