I have many names based on my legal name of Ernest. My names range from Ernest, Ernie, Ern and then from my friend J I received the name "E". Soon everyone who passed through her veRy public house caLLed me E.
So imagine my surprise a few nights ago when I received a Facebook message from my former best friend that says:
Hi Ernie, how are you doing? question. always wanted to know why you stopped e-mailing my sister. did she offend you?
I thought it was a strange request coming at around 2:30 AM, but I started a detailed reply that basicaLLy said her sister was insane ...BUT... I suddenly noticed that the message didn't begin with "Hi E" - it said "Hi Ernie" - so I erased my original reply after noticing that sure enough every former message from J had caLLed me "E".
So I responded briefly AND received no reply:
First of all, is this reaLLy J-----? J----- always called me E.
After two days I stiLL had not received a reply, so it made me think the crazy sister of J had hijacked J's FB account.
So I stopped by J's daughter's house right around the corner from me and got J's phone number. I caLLed her this afternoon and she was surprised that someone had used her FB messaging disguised as her trying to trick me.
