The Rare Norm 3 weeks ago Share Tweet Pin Share People use mine all the time. I have an Instagram account now because of this. At first, I downloaded all their photos and shopped crap into them and reuploaded them. They got outrageous. Then, I left snarky comments for their friends. Another person used my email address for recovery for their credit card account, so I went and suspended their card. I’ve also reported prepaid phones stolen. I’ve gotten emails from people’s bosses like, “Kyle can switch shifts with you, but you need to call today and talk to him about it.” I’ve gotten reminders for medical appointments. I constantly get stuff in Dutch that I can’t read. The worst ever was the lady who ordered baby furniture and set the account to my email, including her home address in the order confirmation. I found her business email address at a university where she’s a professor. I sent her a friendly request not to do it again. She did it again, so I sent her a baby shower basket and a card. I haven’t heard from her, but she definitely changed the account or never ordered from them again. The crazy thing is, while I did get my first name at Gmail.com, it’s not at all a common name. It’s slightly more common in the Netherlands, which explains the Dutch emails… And some of the people using it have absolutely different first names. While it’s annoying, it has become a favorite hobby to screw with them, so right now I absolutely adore you and I hope it takes the person weeks and many shop trips before they figure out why their car keeps honking.
