This afternoon at work, a message popped up via MSN Messenger saying that Sonja at [her email address here] had added me as a contact.
“Do you know a Sonja?” I messaged to Burrito, thinking maybe I’d forgotten another new (which would now be old since we haven’t hired anyone in three months) employee’s name.
“Nope. I don’t.”
So I accepted Sonja’s add and promptly IM’d her:
“Hi. Do we know each other?”
[note the lack of pause]
“No, I don’t think so. I work with Jenny Burns in Travel.”
Now, I don’t know anyone by the name of Jenny Burns and I sure as hell don’t know what “Travel” is.
In my medicated state, I considered responding with,
“Do you usually add total strangers to your contact list?” A/S/L?
But then I decided Sonja must have been saddened by her short list of MSN Messenger buddies to add a total stranger, whose address she yanked from some FWD::::::IMPRTANT!! PLEEEASE READ having to do with urban legends about deoderant, or sex curses in the form of long droughts.
So, still confused, I blocked her. And Sonja and her friend Jenny Burns in Travel were none the wiser.
