Yeah, I'll Have 150 Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Please?

I've seen it all now.  I received this email today, from a "real" looking gmail account, not one of those bogus weird addresses:

Hello
  I will like to place an order for individual Pulled Pork bbq
Sandwiches for 150 people on 17th of April and pick up time is 4pm
.This  for my Son Birthday Party  and let me know if you don't serve
chicken salad and email me your menu so i can choose other option from
it.
The food will be picked up by my courier and I am ready to pay the
full payment with my credit card so get to me with the following
information below......
Restaurant Address:
Total cost for the food:
Cell Phone #:


I am totally rolling on the floor because it sounds legit.  A piece of me is a little afraid this is an old lady who got the wrong email address and is expecting 150 sandwiches on April 17th.  I'm picturing a grandmother who is having a 50th party for her son and has no idea how to operate the internet and is just emailing the wrong people for her goods.

This puts Mary Prendergast to shame.

  2. The title made me laugh because I was thinking about how much pulled pork you wanted to eat last time you were here haha.

I love comments almost as much as I love summer. I reply to all comments except those ridiculous anonymous comments offering me dirty deeds and real estate. When you leave your comment, please make sure your own settings will allow me to reply to you. Nothing makes me sadder than replying to your comments and then realizing it's going to the no-reply@blogger address!
