At the end of a long day of dealing with teenagers at school and a mouthy five-year-old at home, the last thing I want to deal with is ironing clothes. That's a true statement, and I was really annoyed to have to iron several outfits for this week, but alas, that's not what I'm going to complain about today. Maybe next time ;)
I'm talking about rude people today. In particular, one rude person. I've never even met this person, but for the second time in six months she is on my mind and on my nerves. I have a pretty common name and a pretty generic email address. This was a necessity because of my teaching position. I was required to get a yahoo email address when I started teaching six years ago. I tried to get the basic email@example.com, but it was taken. However, Yahoo offered me an alternative- a pretty unknown "ymail" address. Stupidly I accepted, even though Ymail is CONSTANTLY mistaken for Gmail. Most people just assume it's gmail and that I have sloppy hand-writing or that it's a typo. I don't blame them for thinking that. I probably would too.

Anyway, there is a women with the same name as me who has the gmail equivalent of my email address, so I am sure that she gets emails that are for me fairly regularly. Not because I give out her address, but because people make innocent mistakes. Right? So last April, a student emailed an essay to me, but sent it to her email address. I was supremely pissed off when the student showed me her response. She was incredibly rude to this poor tenth grader. She didn't outright curse her, but she was pretty close. I emailed her a few times trying to explain that it was an innocent mistake and that there was no need for her to be rude and hateful to a 15 year-old girl, but this woman is just a piece of work. I'm glad I don't have to deal with her in real-life because she was definitely one of the most unpleasant people I've ever dealt with online, and that's saying A LOT!

It comes up again this week because an administrator at my school accidentally emailed her and got a similar response. I guess I'm bothered because she acts like I am purposely giving out her email address which would make ZERO sense (but I think I will start doing that for spammy things I have to sign up for, just to be petty!) and she's being unnecessarily aggressive about it. If you get a rude email from me, or no response at all, please double check that you aren't sending it to my mean doppelganger, okay?!?!
Now I'm off to do some ironing!
