A Killer E-Mail August 20, 2016

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

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 plans. The husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday.  His wife planned to fly down the next 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 left out one letter in her email 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.

The widow, expecting messages from relatives and friends, decided to check her e-mail.  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
Date: March 21, 2015

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’ve seen 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!

Aah . . . that’s better!

I liked the joke all the way through, but I particularly loved the last line. Classic! 😀

While watching the Olympics, I saw previews for a new show on NBC this fall, The Good Place ~> a comedy set in Heaven where residents drink without getting hangovers, eat without getting fat, and stay in shape without exercise.

And no commuting on crowded trains!

Bun Karyudo - August 20, 2016

Hey, that sounds like my kind of place! Who do I have to bribe to get in?

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

I think Gabriel is the bouncer at the door.

2. Jill Weatherholt - August 20, 2016

LOL! Good one, Nancy!

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

It puts the power of perspective into perspective.

3. Tippy Gnu - August 20, 2016

Very funny! 😀

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

What a shocker to see that (a) your dearly departed ended up in The Bad Place, and (b) you’re scheduled to arrive the next day!

Tippy Gnu - August 20, 2016

It would certainly be an unearthly experience.

Here’s a story about someone who’s own carelessness gets herself caught in the Bad Place.

This is a good one Nancy! Laughing here!!! Will be reading it to CH when he gets out of bed! I think the heat has been getting to him… we finally had a cool front roll in last night and we have a little preview of fall this weekend!

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

Glad that you got a hit of fresh air, Pix! Greetings to CH.

5. L. Marie - August 20, 2016

Ha ha ha!!!!

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

I’ll see your ha ha ha and raise you a tee hee.

6. Rainee - August 20, 2016

Made me chuckle Nancy – posted it to Facebook 🙂

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

Yay! Sharing giggles and grins is what Silly Saturday is all about.

Quite a shocking missive to receive right after the funeral.

Kate Crimmins - August 20, 2016

Hope she had a sense of humor…..

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

Yes! A sense of humor helps us bounce back when faced with mishaps and misteps and misdirected missives.

8. Val Boyko - August 20, 2016

Oh dear!! So funny 😆

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

An e-mail like that would tend to grab my attention!

9. colonialist - August 20, 2016

A wonder heart failure didn’t cause a prompt reunion with her husband – wherever he was!
Greatly giggleworthy.

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

I know! And the poor dear had probably already had a full day.

10. judithhb - August 20, 2016

Very good Nancy!

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

It’s a good thing that so many e-mails are addressed by hitting the “Reply” button . . . saves this kind of shake up!

11. Barb - August 20, 2016

Brilliant Nancy, thanks for my Sunday morning chuckle!
Shared it to FB.

nrhatch - August 20, 2016

Hi Barb! Glad you enjoyed.

I’ve never fainted but can’t fault her for collapsing after receiving this mis-addressed missive.

12. joannesisco - August 20, 2016

BWAHAHAHA!! So funny!! 😀

nrhatch - August 21, 2016

Yay! Laughter is “just what the doctor ordered.” Speedy healing, Jo.

13. The Secret Life of a Vagabond - August 21, 2016

Me and my boyfriend couldn’t stop laughing.

nrhatch - August 21, 2016

Excellent! Hope your whole day is wreathed in smiles.

14. anotherday2paradise - August 21, 2016

Hilarious story, Nancy. 😀 Love the palm tree image. Paradise is much more preferable than that other HOT place. 😯

nrhatch - August 21, 2016

Yes! Palm trees, a sea breeze, and no pitchforks!

15. suzicate - August 21, 2016

Bwahaha, this one always makes me laugh!

nrhatch - August 21, 2016

Here’s to finding things to laugh about every day.

16. Debra - August 21, 2016

This is a winner joke! I thought it was pretty hilarious even without the final “furnace blast!” I hope I can repeat this one well because I loved it!

nrhatch - August 22, 2016

Good luck remembering the joke, Debra. Most of the jokes I hear evaporate before I share them . . . unless I post them here.

17. Tiny - August 22, 2016

This was hilarious! The email is heavenly worded 🙂

nrhatch - August 22, 2016

Very clever wording for this miscommuniqué!

18. diannegray - August 22, 2016

Haaaaa! Good one Nancy! I’d get a big shock too 😀

nrhatch - August 22, 2016

Glad you got a kick out of it, Dianne. It floored her!

19. philosophermouseofthehedge - August 24, 2016

What a great giggle. Thanks

nrhatch - August 24, 2016

Glad it was good for a giggle!

20. livelytwist - September 2, 2016

Oh dear! She wasn’t expecting death the next day!

nrhatch - September 2, 2016

And not prepared for having her deceased husband speak to her from beyond the grave.
