The Slice

When your email misses by 3,000 miles

A colleague sent his young-adult son an email about a possible purchase of a computer. My co-worker's son lives in Spokane.

But the reply my colleague then received came from a member of the Canadian navy currently in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Apparently my friend had made one key-stroke mistake when typing his son's email address.

He said the fellow over in Maritime Canada could not have been nicer.

I wonder how that far-away sailor is coping with the lack of an NHL season.
