Deadly Confession

THE CONFESSION

Hi Fred, this is Alan next door

I have a confession to make

I’ve been feeling guilty these past few months and have been trying to pluck up the courage to tell you, but at least I’m telling you now in a text message as I feel bad about you not knowing.

The tru th is I have been sharing your wife a lot lately

In fact, probably more than you

I haven’t been able to get it at home recently, but that’s no excuse, I know.

The temptation was too much

I feel so guilty and I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies

It won’t happen again

Please suggest a usage fee and I’ll pay you

Regards, Alan.

THE ACTIONS

Fred, feeling betrayed and insulted, grabbed his gun (he is an American, after all!), rushed next door and shot his neighbor dead

He returned home, poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa to reflect

Then he took out his phone and saw he had a second message from his neighbor:

SECOND MESSAGE

Hi Fred, Alan here again

Sorry about the typo on my last text

I guess you figured it out anyway – the damned Auto-Correct changed ‘wi-fi’ to ‘wife.’ Technology, hey?

Regards, Alan
