Keyboard Capers

An acquaintence forwarded the joke, presented with a little editing. The lesson to be learned is to double check your spelling. Here's what happens when one types the wrong e-mail address:


A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw 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. His wife was flying down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel. Unlike years ago, there was a computer in his room. He decided to send an e-mail to his wife; however, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address. Without noticing his error, he sent the email 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
Subject: I have arrived!

Dearest Love:

I know you are surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now, and you are allowed to send e-mail to your loved ones. I have just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow, and look forward to seeing you then.

Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

PS: It sure is hot down here!

Remember, "user friendly" is an oxymoron.
