BEWARE OF WRONG E-MAIL ADDRESS:
Here’s a lesson learned from keying in an incorrect e-address. (Ever used a group or batch addresses?)
“ A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a blistery winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
But due to hectic schedules it was difficult to coordinate their travel together. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to e-mail his wife. However, he accidentally left out a letter in her e-mail address and without realizing the typo error, sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. Her husband was a minister who was called home to glory, following 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 fainted. The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor and saw the computer monitor on, which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I’VE ARRIVED
Date: 16 October 2004
I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mail to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to see you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
Sure is freaking HOT down here! “
Folks: Double check your address before hitting that “send” button, please!
