Wrong Email Address
A couple going on vacation but his wife was on a business trip so he went to the destination first and his wife would meet him the next day.
When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email. Unfortunately, when typing her address, he mistyped a letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.
When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint. At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:
"Dearest Wife, Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow."
Old Man and The Bus
One day an old man stood up on a bus halt. He looked waiting for something. Then he asked to a young man near him, "Excuse me, what time is the bus to Bandung?"
"5 minutes later," the young man answered. "What about the bus to Semarang?" the old man asked again. "Around 10 minutes later," the young man answered briefly. "Where are you going to go, Sir?"
"I just wanna cross this street. I'm afraid they hit me," the old man answered then walked crossing the street.
A girl was substituting as a teacher for her friend. She figured that it would be best if she wrote everything on the board for the kids, so it would be easier for them to understand.
During math class, she said to the class, "Ok class, it is time for your math test. I will write the problems for the test on the board". So she did it, and they took the test.
Later in science, she said to the class, "I will write the questions for your science assignment on the board". So she did and they took the test.

A Revolutionary Feature
Apple has just announced the release of their latest iPhone model, and it comes with a feature that will change the way we use our phones forever.
The new iPhone has a built-in teleportation device! That's right, you can now teleport yourself to any location in the world simply by selecting it on your phone's map and hitting the "teleport" button. No more waiting in traffic or sitting on a cramped airplane for hours!
Of course, there are a few kinks that still need to be worked out. During our tests, some users ended up getting teleported to the wrong location, while others got stuck in walls or teleported halfway underground.
One day there was a class of kids at school. They were having a hard time concentrating on the work because it was snowing so hard outside. They were just waiting for that blessed announcement of the rest of the day off.
Suddenly, the intercom beeped and they heard the voice of their principal; 'Attention, students. Due to the weather conditions, we will only be attending school half of the day this morning"/
After all the students' cheers had stopped, the principal continued; "And we will be attending the other half this afternoon".
