Ticket to Heaven
A husband prepares a trip for the wife. But how does ‘she’ react?
A couple was going for a vacation. But the wife had to go on a business trip. So they planned that the husband would go to the destination first and the wife will join him later. When he reached the hotel, he decided to send her a quick mail. But in his hurry, he mistyped the email address and the mail reached an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away just the day before. When the grieving widow opened the mail from an unknown sender, she stared at the monitor for a few seconds, let out a piercing scream and fell down on the floor in a dead faint. At the sound, the family rushed in and saw the note on the screen: ‘Dearest Wife: Just got checked in. It is great out here. And everything is prepared for your arrival tomorrow.’
