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.
