Default Be careful typing email addresses

I know I've heard this before but I still think it's funny. (sorry for all caps but that is how I received the email. I copy and paste it)

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 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 ANDFAINTED. 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: January 30, 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 WAS.

P.S. SURE IS FREAKING HOT DOWN HERE!!!!!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
