Wrong Email Address – –


A couple from Minneapolis decided to go to Florida for the weekend. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years ago. Because both had job commitments, they decided that the husband would fly to Florida on a Thursday and his wife would follow the next day.

On arriving, the husband checked into the hotel. In his room was a computer, so he decided to send his wife an e-mail back in Minneapolis.

However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address. Thus, the e-mail got sent to a total stranger without him realising.

Meanwhile in Houston, a widow had just returned from her husband’s funeral, to whom the e-mail had gone. The dearly departed was a minister of many years, who had passed away following a heart attack. The widow checked her e-mail expecting condolences from relatives and friends.

Upon reading the first message, she fainted. The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor and saw the computer screen which read…..

From: Harry   To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I’ve Arrived

I know you will be surprised to hear from me. They have computers down here now, and you’re allowed to send emails to your loved ones.

I have just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then!

p.s. Sure is hot down here!
