A couple going on vacation but his wife was on a business trip so he went to the destination first and his wife would meet him the next day.

When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.

Unfortunately, when typing her address, he mistyped a letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, 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.

P.S. Sure is hot down here.

  1. I thought this over 60’s quote re checking your emails was very funny

  2. My daughter had started a new job and dress requirements for footware was steel cap work boots. Her means of transport was bus to and from work plus a large walk from the bus stop to the work place. She rang me to inform me that first afternoon that she had had a lot of people driving by giving her a toot with their car horns, she said it must be her new boots, as she had never had this sort of reaction when wearing stilettos…!

    So next morning I ring her to make sure she is on her way to work and hadn’t slept in and I hear the tooting of the car horns while talking to her on the phone. So I send her a message “Goodmorning to the lady with these boots where made for walking and how many roots have you had this morning…?!?

    Oh dear… I still shudder at the thought of my error…! My daughter thought it was so hilarious. She sent me the message back to show what I had done, but to top off my embarrassment she had put it on Facebook…!

    So the moral of this story is if you need glasses to read or write put them on before writing a message and also check the messages for any error’s before sending, as once it has been sent it is out there for all to see….!
