"Electronic" Mail

I called OfficeMAX to submit a claim on one of my executive leather chairs (the hydraulics are never not shoddy, so I will never purchase any chair without a replacement plan) and they deftly and quickly got everything in order and ready to submit. She wanted to know if we could do this via email. I was MORE THAN THRILLED at the idea:

"And we can do this via email?"
"Yes, ma'am."
"Your email is last name at gmail dot com?"
"Yes, ma'am."
"And you have the pictures of the broken chair?"
"Yes, ma'am"
"Are you ready to write down the email address we need you to send the pictures to?"
"Can you email me that information?"
"No."
"I thought we were doing this via email."
"We are. Are you ready to write down the email address?"
"No. If we're doing this by email there should be no writing down of addresses - you have my email address, will you please just email me where you want the pictures sent?"
"I can't do that. You have to write down the address."
"So what is it you're going to email me?"
"All the other information, after you email the pictures."
"But you can't email the address?"
"Right."
"Does that seem really, really strange to you?"
"Yes. It does. Now, are you ready to copy the address?"

*sigh*

Hey Eric,
I'm wondering if you know what happened to Tomas?? He's dropped off the face of the planet, (normally not a big deal, life gets in the way).. I didn't think anything about it when he didn't answer e-mails, texts and stuff I'd shoot off his way letting him know how life is going on this end of the world, figured he was probably busy with school etc. but when I look in on his journals, he's been off the grid for nearly 5-months.

Wasn't worried... but beginning to get there now. Just wondering if you knew where he went?

Thanks!

The last time I interacted with our mutual friend was on 3/18. We exchanged texts.

Must really suck to be her. I'm sure you are not the first to point out this very odd discrepancy.
