A friend of mine asked someone in her office to send a fax for her. The person wanted to help and said no problem then promptly sent the fax to my friend's fax number instead of the number it was supposed to go to. You can imagine her surprise when she received her own fax. I don't think she will ask her to re-send it...
Someone I know sent her boss to a meeting at someone's home rather than the office. He knew something was up when he arrived in the residential neighbourhood.
Another friend sent a courier with an urgent package that had to get there on time, but transposed the numbers and delivered it to the neighbour, two doors down. Oops!
What can you do, but apologize and move on and try not to let it happen again. It does go to show you that those urgent things can always be fixed. Human error is almost always taken into consideration.
