I have several e-mail accounts. One at work. One personal. One “personal business”, that I use for online ordering and mail-listy stuff. I just received an e-mail in my personal account from Meatheads, the new burger place in Northbrook. It looked like this, and included a coupon:
First, I think, “Oh, cool”. Then I think, “I don’t remember giving them my e-mail address”. Then I think, “Wait, even if I did give them my e-mail address, I wouldn’t have given them this e-mail address.”
Then I figured it out:
I blogged about them. And my blog is attached to my personal e-mail account.
Huh. I don’t know whether this makes me happy or not.
It seems I didn’t figure it out. My mother sent me an e-mail saying that she is on their mailing list and she “redirected” the above to my personal e-mail account.
