Mistaken Identity Part 3

Recently I’ve been receiving a number of emails not intended for me. Somebody somewhere, I’m guessing called Ryan Andrews, has inadvertently used my email address in signing up for websites & services so my inbox is getting cluttered with things that don’t interest me.

Time for a third email to somebody sending an email not intended for me…


You’ve been invited to join the OA Service Corps at Rendezvous! Rendezvous is Sept 23-25th at Willow Metro Park and we need your help to make sure the event is awesome!

We have roughly 100 spots lefts so register fast to make sure you get it. That may sound like a lot but we had to have a waitlist back in 2013 so don’t delay! You can register now at: https://scoutingevent.com/?RendezvousStaffGL2016

Make sure you select to include meals (since your shift times won’t line up with when your troop eats) and that you select “physical arangements” as your station.

Register ASAP if you still want a spot! It’s going to be a ton of fun and you won’t want to miss out on the cool staff swag and special after party!

Yours in Brotherhood,
Nick Meier

Hello Nick,

Greetings to you too!

First of all, let me say how good it was to hear from you. Your email brightened up my dull and rainy day considerably, it was like a ray of sunlight breaking through the dull clouds of my life.

Thank you for the invite to your “Rendezvous”. I didn’t know that you Americans were as fond of the French language as we are here in the UK. Actually, come to think of it, I was saying this to a friend just the other day. A case of deja vu!

It’s rare these days that I get invited to anything, especially after the unfortunate incident involving the goose, trampoline, duct tape and small child which left me answering many questions from both the local police and child services. Anyway, it was all a misunderstanding and was eventually cleared up, but it’s rare for me to leave the house these days during daylight hours for fear of name-calling by the people living in our quiet cul-de-sac (zut alors, it’s another French phrase! They really are quite common, n’est-ce pas?)

While it is exciting to know that there are only 100 spots left, it is with a sad heart that I must decline on taking up one of them and miss out on ‘the cool staff swag’ that you mention. I fear that it is a long way for me to travel and I am unsure as to how much awesome I could contribute to the event, especially as I may be suffering from jet lag, which would also make enjoyment of the special after party you have planned a little tough. I’d be yawning all over the place!

While I do enjoy the emails that I receive from people involved in the Scouting movement in America, I would be extremely grateful if you could remove my email address from your database. I have never signed up for them and can only summise that somebody has entered my email by mistake whenever they signed up believing it to be there’s. If you could let me know when this is done I would be most appreciative

Au revoir, kind regards and I hope you manage to get your full ton of fun.
