Email typo of the day

It's pretty bad when someone misspells his or her own name.

But it happens.

This morning, though, I encountered a new one.

Needing her mailing address so I could send her a coveted reporter's notebook, I sent an email to a woman whose first name is Shireen.

She promptly replied. But she accidentally inserted a "t" between the "i" and the "r" in her name.

At least I assume it was an accident. I have no knowledge of her having self-esteem issues.

Besides, the T key and R key are right next to each other. It could happen to anyone.

And when I wrote back to say I would address the notebook envelope to "Shireen" instead of, you know, she wrote back and apologized for the typo, adding "LOL."
