When form letters go awry...

So, last month I got a wonderful letter offering me a special membership for a fabulous conference that the organizers would love to have me attend, apparently because I am so special and fabulous and wonderful, myself. The second paragraph shows just how much they value my unique background: "In recognition of your current work and the significant contribution you would make, Registration Fees would be waived for you..." (so far so good) "...and your accompanying immediate family including college-age or younger sons and daughters."

Oh, well.

In fact, the letter is addressed to "Father Consolmagno" which indicates failure on two different directions: one, with such a title they might have suspected I don't have accompanying sons or daughters, which shows how paragraph two doesn't know what paragraph one is saying; and two, I am a Brother and not a Father, which shows how carefully they researched my background.
