What makes it legitimate is THE ALL CAPS!
So ~20 years or so ago I worked for a year or so in an office of a BIG engineering firm....that my dad was the president of at the time. The people in the office knew I was his son but the last name threw off people visiting from other offices. One day a VP from one of the divisions was visiting us and took notice of my last name. He asked if there was any relation and I told him there was. There was a long pause...and then he asked me "hey...so when your dad sends me emails in all caps, is he yelling at me, or does he just not know email etiquette?" I looked back at him and told him the truth "Both."

I'm stepping aside on this one to let someone else enjoy good fortune. I'm currently awaiting my inheritance from the British mining engineer in Nigeria who I never knew. My check for the processing has already cleared, so any day now 🥳🥳🥳.
