Fun With Email: “Ribbons For The Santa Fe Event”

Thanks TOMMY

It seems that my personal Gmail account is easily confused with a woman named Cindy’s Gmail account.  From time to time I get emails from a group of ranchers, horse enthusiasts or something of the like which are intended for Cindy but reach my inbox instead.  I have been ignoring them for months but decided to reply to one recently just to have some fun.

In this one, a gentleman named Tommy is trying to get some ribbons for a horse event in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Tommy plays himself, while I assume the role of “Cindy”:

Cindy,
I’ll need ribbons for the Santa Fe Event.  I’ll only want 1st thru 4th places.  With All Around & reserve Champions for each division.
Do you know how much I should budget for them?
Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

That’s no problem, however we can’t have what happened last time occur again.

As for the ribbons, what material would you like them made out of, as it seemed to be a point of contention last time.

Thanks,
Cindy

Sorry, I had a couple glasses of wine. I was just messing with you.

Do you have a quantity for me?

Now I don’t know what anybody in this organization is talking about.

Listen, Tommy. You can’t expect me to turn around a budget request this quickly and late on a Friday to boot.

How does $800 sound?

Cindy thanks.  All I needed was a budget no.  I’ll let you know how it goes for the order.
Thanks again,
Tommy C.

Tommy, if you’re not going to be specific I can’t help you out. There’s no need to be angry with me.

Cindy,
I’m not angry with you.  Your a great person.  I thought you might know a number off the top of your head of the cost per ribbon.
You take the weekend off and we’ll talk about this during working hours.
I’m sorry.

Thank you, Tom. To be fair, I’m a bit run down.

Also, for future reference, it’s “you’re”…not “your”.

Also, while we’re at it, you need to dump that MSN account. It’s like Asking Jeeves for information instead of Googling it. I say this as your friend.

Best regards,
Cindy

 

 

Tommy never replied again, alas, but I’m sure Cindy had some ‘splaining to do the next day.  Today I got one about helping with some cattle for a party.  Here’s to hoping they reply…
