A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong E-mail address:
A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out
during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel
where they spent their honeymoon 20 years before.
Because of their hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their
travel schedules. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on
Friday, and his wife was flying down the following day.
The husband checked into the hotel, and unlike years ago,
there was a computer in his room, and he decided to send an email to his
wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her E-mail address,
and without noticing his error, sent the email to the wrong address.
Meanwhile … Somewhere in Houston …. A widow had just returned home from
her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who was called home to
glory after suffering a heart attack.
The widow decided to check her E-mail, expecting messages
from relatives and friends….. After reading the first message, she
screamed and then fainted. The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his
mother on the floor, and then glanced up and saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Date: Friday, October 13, 2005
Subject: I have arrived!
I know you are surprised to hear from me. They have
computers here now, and you are allowed to send E-mail to your
loved ones. I have just arrived and have been checked in. I see
that everything has been prepared for your
arrival tomorrow, and look forward to seeing you then.
Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
PS . It sure is freakin’ hot down here
