Someone's mom doesn't know their kid's email address so I, Kenneth (Lastname), have just been added to a "personal profile" at USAA

I have just realized that the last name is the less common variation of mine

Well,

Show thread

For years and years, a person used my email address as like, their garbage email address and I got this woman in Ohio's Chili's receipts and teacher conference signup reminders, and I really felt like I got to know her

@aflightybroad access to USAA is just moments away for me, Kenneth

@Pixley @aflightybroad get some real cheap insurance and auto loans.

Plus when you're on the phone with them you can steal valor because they just assume everyone is a troop

@Pixley aahh so it's the French Kenneth Skullsiteweb instead of Kenneth Skullwebsite?

@Ophillous it's the We Still Live in Germany Kenneth Skulldotwebsite, and I am This Is America, Okay Karen Skulldotwebsite

@Pixley that sounds like a really frustrating thing to have to deal with !!

@Ophillous hopefully they figure it out, because I do not know how to tell them they got it wrong!!

@Pixley uh oh!!! Hopefully that doesn't cause any problems before it gets caught

@Pixley I had someone with a very similar name and I'd get that stuff at my email and I was worried at first (I didn't order Grabhub from Des Moines)

@whiskeysailor yeah it's creepy getting a receipt for something you didn't order! Am I being scammed, what is this! But no, people just can't spell their own names

@Pixley @whiskeysailor I was signed up for paperless billing on a gas bill for a place in a town I’ve never been to, about 300km from here near the US border. Dude used my gmail account for some reason. I ignored them til I got multiple « pay now or lose gas » notices then I called the company

@Pixley I think they finally fixed it but for a few years I was jealous of all the British rail travel my namesake was doing, judging by the receipts I would get

@Pixley I'm jealous of any country with any kind passenger rail infrastructure tbh

@ItsTheManOnTheMoon @Pixley it was so good in the 80s when we'd visit, snack trolleys and everything
