My boss, the IT manager, had the really bad idea to put my e-mail address on the corporate contact page, next to the Webmaster label.
There are only 3 e-mails on that (lousy if you ask me) website: a PR executive’s, mine (the webmaster, right), and the HR manager’s — this last one somewhat hidden, on the careers page.
As a consequence, I’m starting to get strange messages from all kinds of weirdos. First one was an Italian lady, offering the services of a bunch of photographers and directors she was allegedly representing. Back then I wasn’t even aware (nobody told me) that my address is on the corporate website, so I presumed it’s simply spam and scared the shit out of the poor bastard :).
The second one was from someone at a chicken farm (!), asking me if the agency wants to take on their account :).
And today, the last one: some insomniac chick (judging by the hour the message was sent) begs me to tell her the name of the song in one of the TV ads made by the agency :)!
Of course, I have forwarded her message to the A/V Department :D.
P.S.: I have forwarded the message from the chicken farm to the right person, and they are officially one of the agency’s clients now. Long live the Webmaster!
