I’ve been quite remiss in sharing the amusing Other Katie emails I continue to receive. Here are a few of the ones I’ve received lately, omitting the zillions of LivingSocial and Thirty-One emails I get. No matter how many times I unsubscribe, some dumb Other Katie keeps re-subscribing using my email address. Katie, seriously, give me a break!
Some Other Katie has the world’s worst photographer friend/relative, as I can attest from the following email:

I can hardly quibble about Grandma sending an email to the wrong person, though. At least she’s trying to use the Internet, even if she’s only marginally successful. And, on the bright side, Other Katie seems to be getting out and spending time with her family, which I do approve of.
Other Katie seems to be looking for housing in Texas again:

Actually, it’s rather odd that Katie needs to rent an apartment, because back in September a real estate agent (from whom I’ve received a number of erroneous emails, and who I already tried to correct twice) forwarded me this title information email, with the PDF of the official title attached:

I hope Carri is better at doing titles than she is at spelling. I’m not sanguine about that, though, since the email address is at AOL.
The next email requires a certain amount of explanation. At first I thought Katie Ferguson was looking to get a job with Hyatt, but then I realized no; Katie works for the Hyatt as an HR lackey, and she blind carbon copied herself on emails she sent out to prospective new hires. Except instead of bcc’ing herself, she carbon copied me… six different times. Which is the worst kind of Other Katie email: When Katie herself types in the wrong email address.

Whoa – I just realized that this could be the same Other Katie who signed up for AdultFriendFinder and put my email in instead. It’s the right geographical region, and she does have a history of typing her own email wrong. If so, Other Katie really needs to get her head in the game, because I know way more about her work and sex life than any stranger should, and it’s entirely her fault.
Fortunately, Other Katie is in good company — or at least international company. I recently received an email from O2, a telecom in the UK, asking how I liked my wireless service. And back in October, I got yet another email in German:

In addition to remaining internationally connected, Other Katie finally sprang for some TV, which may mean that I’ll stop getting her Redbox receipts. (I don’t think much of her taste in movies, let me tell you!)

That price seems reasonable. More reasonable than Darron Edwards Jr.’s sending me three emails in a row with InDesign files attached. Also more reasonable than another Other Katie providing Sears with the wrong email address, and then being rejected for the job(s) she applied to there.

Thank you again for coming in the other week. Such a clever way to get to know the different carpet and tile options. Very fun.
So I would like to request the following samples:
-Semi-Gloss Color Trends
I’m thinking of making each bathroom one of these colors, 3×6 staggered vertical subway tiles up to about 7 or 8 feet, with a light gray grout. The sink area in the bathroom is open to the hallway—no doors–so the tile will wrap around the wall out to the hallway. Just wanted to let you know what I’m thinking. These colors may end up correlating with the “grade house” colors (ie. 3rd and 4th is a gradehouse, 5th and 6th is gradehouse, etc).
If it’s easier to send 2×2 tiles since I am requesting so many, that’s fine. Would be nice to get at least one 3×6 to show the client the size though. Is it possible to get these before next Tuesday?

P Think Green before printing this e-mail.
Instead of thinking green before printing the email, I figured I’d think kiwi. Or maybe Aegean, Go Green, or Sea Breeze. On the bright side, though, this Other Katie seems to have some talent towards interior design. Maybe I could get her to help out with our house.
And, last but not least, I’m happy to say that at least one of us has some personality. The following is long, but worth posting in its entirety if only for the names of the folks involved, so I’ve put most of it under the fold. Apparently, an Other Katie is a roller derby lady with Ladies of Laceration on Long Island.
