    So I was in gmail early (in beta), so got my name as my email address - cool. This also means though, for anyone with my name, I'll get random email from people... I'm thinking for cases like "Oh, he said he had gmail, so it must be..." or "it was something like..." type deals. I've gotten a few from different people in real estate, one or two in the New England area, and at least one in California, and my favorite, there's a whale videographer with my name, got one once saying "Yeah, we've got the boat rented, the crew is all set, ready when you are" type thing for somewhere in the Phillipines...

    Here's the one I got today:

    Jkerr you might have a handy email there :D

    I don't think it's coincidence that you get this many; the only weird emails I get are those from like Yugoslavia saying, "Hi I am a nice girl; I have a pretty smile. Come hang out with me." Sounds legit.

    I have a problem like this with my phone! Apparently there's a guy out there named John who's in terrible debt, buys sports cars, and has a lot of friends who sound like they're stoned. One time a car dealer called me looking for John about his purchase, after I explained to him I wasn't John he tried to sell me a car. I told him I didn't have my driver's license yet, he sounded confused after that so I guess my voice is so deep I sound like an adult.
