This is a question Bizarre leaps of logic

Amorous Badger says: "I once humorously suggested that someone had been internet-stalking a Big Brother contestant. They concluded that I was threatening them. What's the oddest misunderstanding you've been involved in?"

Another one involving mad women
So, we moved into a new house in may. There were a number of minor repairs that needed doing (i.e. the electric shower unit was hanging precariously off the wall, and eventually fell off, etc) that were agreed to be done either before we move in, or very shortly after. 3 months in, nothing happened, so I sent a polite email asking when they were likely to be done, etc etc. Eventually they were. Great.

Fairly soon afterwards the washing machine died. I notified the landlord, and was dutifully told this would be fixed when they return from their holiday on the 12th September. Great.

By the 12th October I was somewhat concerned so sent a (once again) polite email stating that I hoped they were well and had a good holiday, and asking when it was likely to be done, as we'd been coping without one for 6 weeks.

Within minutes of sending the email I had a phonecall from a woman who was screaming so loudly and incomprehensibly that she was on the point of tears.

I struggled a "hello?" inbetween the rantings, at which point I put the call on speakerphone (as I doubt my partner would've believed what was happening otherwise) whereupon I was accused by my landlord (I later gathered) of threatening her, stalking her, spying on her outside her house (no idea where she lives?) and being verbally abusive and overly demanding. Apparently we aren't living in "the four seasons" and she has a "big date in her diary to evict us".

Yeah...wasn't exactly planning on extending the tenancy after that sparkling interchange.

The leap of logic? Because I mentioned her holiday in the email, despite quoting her original email in the reply.

TL;DR I have a mental landlord, and was foamed at over the phone and accused of stalking for asking for a new washer. Wow that was dull...

Didn't read because it started with 'So'....
...and the question was 'What', not 'Why'.
