Good morning, friends! I have a funny story to share with you today. Last week, I received a call from Colonial Parking in Washington DC regarding a returned transponder with a note on it. Our conversation went a little something like this-
Colonial Parking- Yes, is this Lindsay Hixson?
Colonial Parking- This is Sarah with Colonial Parking in DC. Someone found your parking transponder and returned it to me.
Me- That's weird. I don't have a parking transponder... And I haven't been downtown in months.
Colonial Parking- Well, your name, number and address is on this note.
Me- What?! How did someone get my address? Is there anything else on the note?
Colonial Parking- Yes, there's a name or note of some kind in blue ink. I can't really read it.
Me- Wait... Is my name printed or handwritten?
Colonial Parking- Printed.
Me- Okay. Yea, that transponder isn't mine. Only the sticky note is.
Colonial Parking- What do you mean?
Me- Is my name and number part of the sticky note? Does it also say "Sonic Promos"?
Colonial Parking- Yes.
Me- Right. I work in promotions. The sticky note is branded with my info, but I have nothing to do with that transponder. One of my clients must have just used a note I gave them to label the transponder. I assume it belongs to the name written in blue ink.
Colonial Parking- Ah, I see.
Me- Sorry about that! I hope you're able to find them!
