I have a very common name. I used to get phone calls from collection agencies checking to see if I were the person who owed them money. Now I don’t have a land line.
Cell phones have changed the way I use the phone. I NEVER answer my land line (never really use it, but it’s part of a bundle…) and I don’t answer my cell phone if I don’t recognize the number. It’s awesome.
There are something like 10 Scott Wilson’s that work at HP. I must have been the first one, because my email address is just scott.wilson… and all the others have either a number or an initial somewhere in there.
I sometimes get emails for other Scott Wilsons. Sales related emails sometimes. Once I got invited to what sounded like a pretty sweet party in Chicago. I always forward to the list of Scott Wilsons and forget about it.
Well… somebody (probably whose name is Scott Wilson, but not me) subscribed to a shit ton (that’s a metric unit of measurement) of stuff.
I get emails every day from some sort of promotion of some type. I always hit unsubscribe. When will it end? Or is this just part of my job now?
