Misaddressed email

I own a domain name that is very similar to that of a community music school in England. I registered the name some years ago for a project that never took off, but I can't bring myself to cancel it.

So every once in a while I get an email message intended for someone at the school. I just correct the address and forward it on. (My little bit of volunteer work for a school I've never seen!).

Today's email brought this misaddressed message (I've changed the names):

Hi Tim,

Trust the cheque got to you! Have booked/diarized Edward and Ron for drum lessons, commencing Wednesday mornings :

Edward 7.25 – 7.55 a.m. (students need to be seated in homeroom 8.30 a.m.)

Ron 7.55 – 8.25 a.m.

Unless otherwise told, the boys will be outside your drum lesson room (high school building) at 7.20 a.m. on Wednesday 30th August, 2006.

Please would you confirm by return email that this is okay!

Have a wonderful summer break!!

I love drumming (hand drumming, in my case). But giving drum lessons at 7:30 AM? I'd need a good summer break, too!
