I'm still not that Gary, says US email mixup bloke who hasn't even seen Dartford Crossing

This is eerily familiar. Right down to the early adopter, first.surname gmail.

I am regularly astonished by not only the namesakes of myself who do not know their own email addresses, but also by the thickness of the organizations and people to whom they have supplied my email address.

No, I am not your family member.

I do not owe your foreign government any taxes.

The vehicle to which you refer is not mine, and mine has never driven in your land, though I'm glad you want my repeat custom.

I'm glad you found someone with my name fetching, but I do not want your rather-too-personal photo which you have sent me (yes, this has happened, and it turns out the randy bloke had actually had business cards made up with my email address. I tracked him down from sheer curiosity, and he found it hilarious.)
