Gerald once asked me to write a number of reviews about imaginary businesses providing imaginary services.
This is going back over 2 years so you can imagine my surprise when I was sent a link to a business reviews website and there in front of my eyes was one of my reviews.
I confronted Gerald about this, and his reply was, “who sent you the link to the site?”
As it turned out, it was Gerald himself who had sent me the link, hoping that I would open it and recognise my review.
The lesson I learned was never believe reviews you read on websites and take any online recommendations from unknown people with a pinch of salt.
