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:
Hell Mr. Smith,
I have been in meetings all afternoon and will respond to your email first thing tomorrow morning.
I quickly emailed him back to apologize and explain what had happened. He emailed me back to say he hadn't even noticed, but he was laughing hysterically and said I had certainly made his day.
