A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong e-mail address.
A couple from Minnesota decided to go to Florida to thaw out during one particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon twenty years earlier. Because of their hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day.
The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to e-mail his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mails, expecting messages of condolence from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted. Her son rushed into the room, finding his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:
To: “my loving wife.” Subject: “I’ve arrived.” Date: “January 16, 2004. “I know you’ll be surprised to hear from me. They have computers here, and you’re allowed to send e-mails to your loved-ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I’ve seen that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
Your loving husband
P.S. Sure is hot down here!”
