So apparently there’s this GSI at Berkeley with the same name as me, but it seems that I got to Berkeley first so I got the email that’s <ourname>@berkeley.edu. Hers has her middle initial in it, but people keep missing it and e-mailing me instead, including this one professor who kept sending me the damn things even after I told him two or three times that I was not the person he was looking for. He even sent me a thank you email later all like, thanks for helping me out today! And I was like, I’M NOT … GAH.
I wonder how many important emails she has missed because of this… I try to correct people whenever they send me something that looks important but they never seem to get the point. They just keep on comin’……..
