Receiving the wrong emails and text messages have become so commonplace, like a dialed wrong number in the past, we hardly ever message back and tell the sender they made a mistake.
AMinneapolis couple in this fictitious story
decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly freezing cold winter. The couple planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Because of their busy schedules, it was difficult for the couple to coordinate their travel plans. So the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, while his wife planned to fly down only the next day.
The husband checked into their hotel and admired how much of it was still the same as the first time they were there and how much was new and posh. One of the major differences was that there was a computer in his room now.

He decided to send a loving email to his wife from this computer. However, since he was typing out her address from memory, he accidentally left out one letter and sent the email without realizing his error.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her dear husband’s funeral. He was a well-loved Baptist minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack.
The widow decided to check her email, expecting to see condolence messages from family and friends. But after reading her very first email, she yelled and fainted.

The widow’s son rushed into the living room, found his mother on the floor, and then saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I’ve Arrived
Date: 20 June 2019
I know you’re surprised to hear from me so soon. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been warmly checked in.
I’ve seen to it that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
Looking forward to seeing you then!
P. S. Sure is freaking hot down here!!!
P. P. S. I love you.
That puts a "wrong number" call in a whole new light! Remember to share this story with your friends and see what they think about it.
Another woman who received an unexpected email recently was Diana Ross. The correspondence reportedly came from her ex Robert Ellis Silberstein.
According to a source, Silberstein didn’t enjoy the new documentary “Diana Ross: Her Life, Love, and Legacy,” as much as he expected.
The source, present at an early screening of the film at the Paley Center on Thursday, said Silberstein texted a friend during the film,
“So boring. Need to find a way to leave.”
The 73-year-old music executive gave Ross a different review, according to the source, emailing her something very similar to:
“Hey D, just watched the movie with [Ross’ son] Evan, Chudney and Rhonda. You look amazing and sound the same. How amazing you are! Love always, Your X.”
