Did you ever find yourself feeling a bitty-bit annoyed at some people…after you take the time and effort to comment over at their place and they can’t even be bothered to drop you a quick little response?
Yeah…me neither. Only, I don’t know exactly how…and I don’t know exactly why…but it just occurred to me today to check out my G-mail account. You’ll never guess what I found.
Okay, so maybe you do know. I found 276 un-opened messages:
I opened two of them and realized that somehow, these were a lot of messages that I didn’t know I’d received!
Crap, dammit, crap! Sorry JennyMac. Sorry Gigi. Sorry Kelly and Kim and Christiejolu and Carrie and JP and Alicia and Heather…
And that’s just on the first 25 or so. Crap. How? Why?? I don’t get it.
It seems that a "Kathrynville" G-mail account is the recipient of all these "lost" emails.
Yes, I'd reserved the email “Kathrynville” through G-mail. I couldn’t resist. I’d fantasized about transferring ‘Inside…Out’ over to a ‘Kathrynville’ blog one day…had even reserved the website address before anyone else could pull the rug out from under me. But that’s as far as I got…instead using the unpublished website as a testing ground for stuff where I don’t want people watching me. I know you understand. (Minds out of the gutter, people. This means you, Mark.)
But, I haven’t logged into the Kathrynville ID since…like, March! HOW did all these responses wind up HERE? And even more important: What do I do with them now?? I’ve got un-opened responses going back to March 8th!! Here I thought that I was being ignored…and the truth was that I was ignoring them.
So now, I’m trying to do damage control. Of equal importance, I have to figure out how this happened so it doesn’t keep happening over and over again. Or, I suppose I could regularly remind myself to check my G-mail account. Yeah, there’s that.
In the meantime, please remember that although some of us may be a tad demented,
Or the sign of a faulty email system….take your pick.
