Customer what ?

There's someone else with the same name as me at the bank I work at (not surprising, we have somewhere over 20,000 employees). Over the last month or two I've occasionally received mail intended for him. Today I got one, so I forwarded it to OtherDavid[tm], with the comment "David, I believe this mail was intended for you", and cc-ed it to the original sender. I got the following reply from the original sender - "I just sent this to you, you fool!".
I managed a surprisingly polite reply, considering my likely blood pressure at the time, and he apologised reasonably quickly, claiming that he was a good friend of OtherDavid outside of work. I've carefully resisted making any comments about hating to be one of his enemies or anything ...

And the ironic thing about this ? These guys work in the phone banking area !
