Sure Is Hot Down Here Honey

A small detail makes a huge difference. Take the case of an Illinois man who left his chilling, snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation with his wife in Florida. But his wife was on a business trip and would meet him there the very next day. So the man reached the Florida first before his wife. When he finally checked into his hotel, he decided to send a quick e-mail to her wife informing about his arrival. But he was unable to find the scrap of paper on which he'd written her e-mail address, he did his very best to type it in from memory. (Hmm...but why didn't he just call or sms her right?) Then he sent the message to his wife.

Unfortunately, he missed one letter, and his email was directed to an elderly 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 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's
prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

P.S. Sure is hot down here honey

You see, sometimes a letter can make a huge difference right? What we say or write will have different effects on our lives as well as other people's lives. People might perceive our message wrongly if we are not being accurate. So we'd better be more careful ok! :) Have a nice day folks.

P.S.: So double check the email address that you type. It might land on someone's else mailbox!
