I received an email from an important government office. I had been in meetings all afternoon so wanted to quickly reply to the person to let them know I had received their email and would respond to them as soon as possible. I wrote my message and pressed Send. As the Send was being processed and it was leaving my screen, I noticed with horror that instead of Hello I had written Hell.
My email went like this:
I have been in meetings all afternoon and will respond to your email first thing tomorrow morning.
I quickly emailed her back to apologize and explain what had happened. She emailed me back to say she hadn't even noticed, but she was laughing hysterically and I had certainly made her day.
