    I have the exact same problem! There is an Erin Bradford who lives somewhere in Kentucky and who doesn’t know her own email address, evidently. I get email for her all the time. My personal favorites were the weekly quilting newsletter and the invitation to the family reunion. The family reunion was one where I replied and tried to explain that they had the wrong Erin. That started a chain of replies where the sender repeatedly tried to explain our relationship – I’m your Aunt Jenny’s husband Bobby’s sister! Ok, but I’m still not related to you. 🙂

      Erin, that is too funny! It’s good to know that this happens to other people also. Thanks for reading and commenting!

      I have the exact same problem. It seems every Ned, Nancy, Nathan, Neal and Neil who has an affinity for Quilting, Real Estate and Snapchat can’t remember their correct email address. Love getting there “forgotten password” emails as well. Not to mention the various family, bosses, coworkers who, on a daily basis share various personal and confidential information. I’ve given up trying to inform them of their mistake, I’ve wasted too much time arguing with morons who think I’ve somehow hacked their acquaintances email address.

      I finally had to abandon the address and move to something a little longer and more unique.

    Hi! Good to know I’m not the only one. I get tons of emails every week for some other Margarita that is not me. For the personal ones I tried initially to clarify they had the wrong person but it gets tiresome after a while, not to mention all kind of newsletters and websites where I have never subscribed or even bookings added to my booking.com account that I never made. Like Neil, I will probably have to abandon the address and use something more personalized.
