A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email
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 hectic
schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel
schedules. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew
to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the
The husband checked into the hotel, and unlike years
ago, there was a computer in his room, so 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.
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 fainted.
The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother
on the floor, and they glanced up and saw the computer
screen which read:
