123.ie Confirmation of Policy Number


There was a very stern disclaimer about not reposting this email if received in error, so I’ll just give you the idea of it.I don’t know that they’d ever actually care though because this is the second time they’ve sent me this policy and the second time I’ve let them know that they have the wrong Kate.


Kate from Ireland (Catherine on official docs) has a new car insurance policy.

Fun facts:

We both drive ford vehicles, albeit hers is a little more exciting  – mine is a wagon and hers is a Fiiiiiiiiiiessssta*!

We have both been driving for over 9 year and were born in the same year. 

Her insurance, with the exchange rate factored in, is much more expensive than mine.




*I googled that image after writing… that car is definitely not any more of a party than my wagon.




I received this a couple years ago, but it’s my favourite

House Hunting

KD from Portland is apparently shopping for a new home.

Fun facts:

We already own our home.

I couldn’t ever afford any of these.

The first name of the realtor sending the listings is the same as my partner’s, except the spelling is weird.





You have the wrong Kate Doyle

Apparently there are lots of Kate Doyle’s in the world and many of them think that my email address is their email address.

A few times a week, I get emails for these other Kate Doyles. Some personal. Some professional. Some dating site password resets. Jokes, recipes, party invites, christian book club invites. I get it all.

I can’t help but wonder how many times the other KD’s answer “why didn’t you respond to my email?” with “… I didn’t get it”.


About me:

My name is Kate Doyle.

I go by Kate. Not Katie (unless you’re my dad) or Katherine or any variation thereof.

I’m currently 28.

I live in Canada.

I am not christian, or a model, or shopping for a new home.

I probably don’t want to go to your party or book club.
