Wrong e-mail address!
A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out
during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at
the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years
earlier. Because of their hectic schedules, it was
difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. 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 send an email to his wife. However, he
accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and
without realizing his error, sent the email. 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 following a heart attack. The widow decided to
check her email 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 screen which
read: To: My Loving Wife Subject: I've Arrived Date:
October 16, 2007 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

PS... Sure is freaking hot down here!
