Lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email 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 email 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 email,
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 email 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 … Sure is hot down here!
