After being nearly snowbound for 2 weeks last winter, a Seattle man departed for his vacation in Miami Beach, where he was to meet his wife the next day at the conclusion of her business trip to Minneapolis.
They were looking forward to pleasant weather and a nice time together. Unfortunately, there was some sort of mix up at the boarding gate, and the man was told he would have to wait for a later flight.
He tried to appeal to the supervisor but was told that the airline was not responsible for the problem.
Upon arrival at the hotel the next day, he discovered that Miami Beach was having a heat wave, and it's weather was almost as uncomfortably hot as Seattle's was cold. The desk clerk gave him a message that his wife would arrive as planned. He could hardly wait to get to the pool area to cool off and quickly sent his wife an email.
Due to his haste he made an error in the email address.
His message therefore arrived at the home of an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had died only the day before. When the grieving widow opened her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a scream and fell to the floor dead.
Her family rushed to her room where they saw the message.....
Departed yesterday as you know
Just now got checked in
Some confusion at the gate
Appeal was denied
Received confirmation of your arrival tomorrow
Your loving husband
p.s. things were not as thought - you're going to be surprised at how hot it is down here
