Tpying correctly.

#100BM Day 63
It’s a beautiful Sunday morning and what better way to spend it than by finally clearing out one of my Gmail accounts (the 10-year-old one that is my first initial plus last name @commonemailendbit.com) of all the subscriptions for which other people have used it (I’ve been marking them as spam, but not necessarily unsubscribing — sometimes I make the effort to email a person directly to make a correction, but it rarely helps).

Here is a smallish sampling of the ones that I did not sign up for myself:

  • Aéropostale (I don’t even think they make clothes that fit me)
  • Amida Spa (UK)
  • Americans for Prosperity (this is SO ME)
  • Bealls (a department store in Florida, a state I haven’t visited since 1993)
  • befrugal.com (various newsletters of theirs)
  • Boca Tanning Club (orange is the new brown)
  • Boodle (a South African scammy-looking loan company)
  • Brighton (not the town, but a US jewellery company)
  • Carleton Rescue Equipment (based in Vancouver, so at least this is the right country – anyone need ski lift evacuation gear?)
  • Catalina Express (can’t think of Catalina without getting this in my head)
  • Connecticut Multispecialty Group (an HMO?)
  • David Lloyd Leisure (British chain of gyms)
  • Dunhill Vacations (which makes me think it’s all cigarette-themed resorts on offer)
  • Getbucks (another dodgy South African loan company – one of my SA brethren is in financial trouble, y’all)
  • Gold Canyon (a mineral investment thing, so another of my brethren is doing OK?)
  • Gold Digest (I have unsubscribed from this at least half a dozen times already)
  • Inbox Dollars (not even looking it up, worry about even typing it here)
  • IndianMoney.com (oh wait, maybe that was me)
  • Kingsley Associates (British recruiting firm – gonna be hard to find a job if you can’t even get your own email address correct when looking for work)
  • Kuflik Dermatology (in NJ – maybe I should see them about my tanning problem (see above))
  • Landry’s Inc./Rainforest Café (never been, find the idea of a plastic jungle in a mall weird and pretty un-ecofriendly)
  • Mail Online (AAAAAAAA!!!!!)
  • Red Tube Mail (hoTTT – maybe slightly better than the Japanese ‘public sex’ website someone’s signed up with using my email address…on three separate occasions)
  • Peninsula Co-op (store in BC, one that does not sell ski lift evacuation gear)
  • Pepsi (a PEPSI mailing list? really? what is so important that you need email updates from a soft drink company?)
  • St. John’s Ambulance Penticton (still waiting to hear from them about not getting their class updates as well – no auto-unsubscribe for that)
  • Sales – Bruma Finance (ANOTHER South African loan company – could someone track this hapless M. (Mylastname) down and help them out?)
  • Schools Campusdegrees.com (sounds legit)
  • Stadium Toyota (I do drive a Toyota, but do not get it serviced in Tampa, FL)
  • Stingray Chevrolet (I do not drive a Chevy, especially not in Tampa, FL)
  • Studio 4 Athletics (again, a BC-based thing, so I have at least one not-bright distant relative there)
  • Sports Fishing Digital (oh, wait, this was totally me)
  • The Melville Inn In Lasswade (an Edinburgh pub (well, in the suburbs) I’ve never visited with middling reviews – who gives a pub their email address?)
  • Vegasworld.com
  • Westlaw (A legal research hub – I wonder if they have advice for that deeply indebted South African?)

This is just in the last year. I did this last summer. What the hell, people? Didn’t you notice you weren’t getting your car service appointments, sales flyers, and porn updates? I sure didn’t need ’em.

    I signed you up for ALL OF THAT. I live to vex you.
