Living in the digital age is great – it’s easy to stay in touch with your friends and family with modern technology. However, technological quirks can also lead to hilarious misunderstandings – this is one such story.
This story has been around for a while, but it’s one of my all-time favorites and I just had to share it with you. It never fails bring a smile to my face – if you enjoyed it, make sure to share it so your friends can have a great day too!
A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they had spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Because of their hectic schedules, the husband flew down to Florida one day ahead of his wife. After he had checked in to the hotel, he noticed that there was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who passed away after having a heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail since she was 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!
I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have checked in. Everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! I hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
PS. Sure is hot down here.
