Here’s one for the weirdness files. I got an email today inviting me to a reunion for staff and students of nursing at an Australian hospital.
The person they were inviting was named Margaret Leigh, and the organizers had gotten the email address (mine) from this lady’s partner…
I am not the Margaret Leigh they’re looking for — why do I hear that in Obi Wan’s voice?
I wrote back to the lady who sent me the invitation and said she must have me confused with someone of the same name. That’s when she wrote back and said my partner “Tim” gave her the address.
I’ve never had a partner named Tim, I’ve never worked at that hospital.
I hope that the organizers of the reunion find this other Margaret Leigh and she is able to attend.
At least it made my day a little more interesting.
PS. I have no reason to suspect this email was anything less than legitimate. Just one of those strange things in life.
