Husband Wanted To E-mail His Wife, Accidentally Types Wrong Email Address
When you send a letter to somebody, you want to make sure that you address the letter properly. In most cases, however, sending something through the Postal Service will get to where it is being delivered, even if you are only relatively close. In many areas, the postal carrier can figure things out if they aren’t exactly right. That isn’t the case with email. If you address something improperly in an email and send it off, you never know where it is going to land or the consequences you may face. That was the case with this man who thought he was sending an email to his wife. In the end, you are going to be laughing out loud.
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 e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without noticing his error, sent the e-mail 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
