Google Drive

Google Drive doesn't deal with multiple accounts perfectly well.

I had someone send me an invitation URL that I didn't have access to - so I went to the account I wanted to request access from (my work address) and clicked on "Request Access". Amusingly, google got confused and thought that I owned the doc and should give access to myself (sadly for me but good for security it didn't allow this):

Here's the email (with "" substituted for *my* email address) that google sent *me* after I requested access:
