Regarding Misdirected E-mail

Jonathan Wood sent the following letter

As you receive your e-mail, it's wise to remember how easily this wonderfultechnology can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with seriousconsequences.

Consider the case of the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets ofChicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and wasplanning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, hedecided to send his wife a quick e-mail message. Unable to find the scrapof paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best totype it in from memory.

Unfortunately he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to anelderly 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 themonitor, 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.


Your Husband

P.S. Sure is hot down here.
