I love you guys, lots, really.... but over the last hour I have had 11 emails thanking me for donating to secret santa and giving me my postage label thingy to print.

I get the hint. I will send it. Promise. Please will you stop emailing me now?!

twirlypoo Tue 01-Dec-15 11:08:58

There are more emails than this but my screen isn't big enough to show them all grin

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 01-Dec-15 11:18:31

I've had seven now!

They are giving me three different SS numbers though (a/b/c)


HawkEyeTheNoo Tue 01-Dec-15 11:21:23

I've emailed, I have seven too! Appears the same person but different secret Santa numbers! Totally panicking as I can barely afford to do one, never mind seven

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 01-Dec-15 11:22:13

Oooh! Ouch, that's probably about 10 too many right there, we're very sorry! Let us try to get that stopped asap.

Same as Bore.
Same numbers, recipient etc but two different SS names (a/b).

AssembleTheMinions Tue 01-Dec-15 11:24:01

I've only had 7! I feel cheated grin

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Tue 01-Dec-15 11:25:32

I have 7 too fgrin.

All the same number though I think.

twirlypoo Tue 01-Dec-15 11:25:33

Oooh I wonder why I didn't get 7 and I got 11 instead?! I have the same as Bore and Gazelda with the A/B thingy though. I am glad it wasn't just me - I too was starting to panic about finding so many gifts to post out!

twirlypoo Tue 01-Dec-15 11:26:21

I feel even weirder now knowing you all got 7. I want 7 not 11 if I can't have just 1! haha!

AssembleTheMinions Tue 01-Dec-15 11:29:10

I would also quite like this annoying pop up to pop off! I got the email an hour ago, of course it's not posted yet! grin

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 01-Dec-15 11:29:34

There is a Tech on the case. (Apparently slightly tearful, but that's how we like 'em). APOLOGIES once again.

AssembleTheMinions Tue 01-Dec-15 11:32:23

Helen can you get them to fiddle about with the pop up while they are at it? <pleads>

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 01-Dec-15 11:37:12

Oh yes, I see no problem in doing that. Kick them while they're down, we like your style. (We will mention it again, yes).

twirlypoo Tue 01-Dec-15 11:44:01

poor tech grin

The pop up is fecking annoying mind!

<rapid twitching of left eye> <wails> <collapses>

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 01-Dec-15 12:15:41

(and the left one's her good one, believe moi. She can ILL AFFORD this.)

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 01-Dec-15 12:29:16

<composes professional face>

UPDATE: Tech has switched off the popup in order to concentrate on the over-enthusiastic email situation. So, every cloud...

Sincere apologies again.

cozietoesie Tue 01-Dec-15 12:55:49

Thanks Helen and Sandy - although I'm feeling rather hard done by with only 7 . grin

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 01-Dec-15 13:06:43

You gotta look at the upside... because of this thread everyone knows that you lot are all lovely and generous and show goodwill to fellow men (excl. Techs, obvs) at Christmas. Some might even say it's a cunning stealth boast, but not me... oh no.

SDTGisAnEvilWolefGenius Tue 01-Dec-15 13:13:04

I see I am not the only one - though I have only had 8 emails so far - so I am clearly far less important and valuable than twirlypoo! winkgrin

Has Tech been on the gin again?

cozietoesie Tue 01-Dec-15 13:29:57

Considerably less important. (Someone on the SS thread has had 42!)

glentherednosedbattleostrich Tue 01-Dec-15 14:10:28

Ooh, do I win with my 14?

As an aside, am I the only one who pictures poor tech being kept in a little cage in the corner of the office only let out to fix things and pour the gin?
