I'm kind of annoyed and don't know if I should be.
My work email has my work address in my email signature. I was corresponding with an accountants office regarding my personal taxes; they have my home address on file, and I confirmed it with them at some point during a telephone conversation. This has nothing to do with work, but I did email them from my work email address.
They then said they'd mail my stuff back to me (a thick wad of receipts and tax forms containing personal info) and in their email they said, "We'll send it out today to (my work address which I never told them to use, that they must have just lifted from my email signature)." I emailed back immediately to say, "Can you please send it to my home address instead?" but they apparently didn't see that email until after it had already been mailed out.
I am annoyed because my home address is the one I GAVE them and it's the same as all previous correspondence, and it's what they have in their files. Why suddenly just see an email signature and change things without asking? It is obviously my work address and the business I was doing with them was for my personal taxes.
I didn't really want it sent there because our office door is locked most of the time, and I know this package won't fit through the mail slot. I am worried that the postman might leave it sitting in the hallway - it's a building with other offices and all kinds of people coming and going. Or, it might necessitate a trip to the post office to pick it up.
Is it a faux pas on their part to just take an email signature address and mail something there, instead of to the address you told them earlier was your mailing address?
