One wrong letter could make a major difference. This letter from a husband, to his wife back home, is the perfect example.
A couple from Minneapolis decided to thaw in Florida during a particularly cold winter. They were planning to stay in the same hotel where they had honeymooned 20 years ago.
Due to busy schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel plans. The man left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on Thursday, while his wife flew the next day.
The man checked in at the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left a letter in his e-mail address and sent it without noticing his mistake.
Somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home after her husband’s funeral. It was a minister called home for fame after a heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mails and waited for news 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 screen saying:
To: My loving wife
Subject: I’ve arrived
Date: January 7, 2016
I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!!!!!
The lesson? Always double check what you write/type.
