I have a Flickr account, as you may have noticed from some of the pictures I have posted. I received this e-mail via Flickr the other day —
ive just seen your post about the swimming cap. I’m looking to join a triathlon team myself but have always been nervous as i would have to wear a swimming cap. I have never worn one before and know nothing about them, so i was wondering if you would be able to help me with one.
How exactly would i put one of these things on? (in as much detail as you can). Would you be kind enough to take some pictures for me of how to put these on, as i have only ever seen images of people on google with them on already, which doesnt really explain much to me
I really hope you could explain about these things for me (the more you can tell me about them the better) and i really hope you will be kind enough to send me some pictures of how to put one on
Can this possibly be legimate? I have never worn a swim cap myself, but are there rumours of the horrible fates that await those who wear them? How could someone be ready for a triathlon without having, at some point, swum with people wearing swim caps? But, if it’s a scam, what’s the point? Getting me to take pictures of people putting on swim caps? That’s a kink so obscure it could only be British.
I replied straight up and received another reply back in less than a hour. The content was some what related, although sufficiently generic to have been automated. The sender has a Flickr account, but not pictures, which is also just a tad odd, although an account can be useful for marking Favorites and what not, even if one doesn’t post any pictures. I remain at a loss, however, for any plausible explanation.
