GRIN AND SHARE IT: Sorry, Wrong Address!

Sorry, Wrong Address!

It’s wise to remember how easily this wonderful e-mail technology
can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences.

Consider the case of the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets of
Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was
planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his
hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail. Unable to find the scrap
of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best to
type it in from memory.

Unfortunately, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to
an elderly preacher’s wife, whose husband had passed away only the day
before. When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look
at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead
faint. At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this
note on the screen:

Dearest Wife,

Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

PS. Sure is hot down here.
