Bob never apologizes, and it never seems to occur to him, that getting e-mail from an administrator at your child's school in the middle of the day could be a cause for alarm.
I know that this is a minor thing. But it's frustrating. If it happens again. And all evidence is that it will happen again. Is there something I can do that levels this up so he pays attention, or am I just stuck forever redirecting this person? Cause right now I.would.really.like.to.redirect.him. But that may be because he has several habits in the same vein that make me think my status as SAHM = free do be our slave anytime we'd like to Bob.
Of course you should redirect him!
I would call him the next time he sends you something. Insist on speaking to him, "He just emailed me."
And say, "Bob, you just sent an email tot he wrong address. You should have sent it to my husband's work email, not to my personal one. Would you delete my personal email from your address book, or whatever it takes to keep it from popping up automatically?
"It's very alarming to get an email from you at the school--I immediately think something must have happened to one of the children.
"And of course, it's frustrating to have to forward these emails along. Plus, DH doesn't see them right away."
If that doesn't work (try it twice), I think you can do a couple of different things. Don't forward it to until the next day (hey, you don't check your email as often anymore).
Or call back in alarm: "I just got an email from Bob--are my children okay? Did something happen to them? Why did he email me? I got so scared, I didn't open it! I just called."
Well, no, maybe not.
But maybe DO call him every single time he emails you incorrectly and say, "Bob, you sent this to the wrong email. Please don't do that anymore--please do whatever it takes to send it to the right email." Every time, not just twice. Provide him with a *polite* "negative consequence," and maybe he'll stop.
