Slippin' up

Today, I got some news from two colleagues, one of whom just got married for the first time, and the other whose long-time wife was recently diagnosed with an advanced form of cancer. I wrote each of them a heartfelt note, which would've been thoughtful if I hadn't mixed up the recipients. FML

Best case scenario is that you get a couple emails in a few days that read “You’re right! I need to change my attitude and embrace this as a new opportunity! As a new beginning of something special!” and “Oh, fuck, I’ve been thinking something similar in the back of my mind… Your terminal cancer metaphor—while oddly specific—really put things into perspective. I don’t know what to do, mate.”

Congratulations on your cancer! So sorry to hear about your wedding.

Don't people write to whom this note is to anymore? Maybe it's just me.

I do, but that doesn't mean that I'm guaranteed to put them in the right envelopes.

Consoling the guy about his new marriage has about a 50% chance of being right.

omg so much lol on this one xD if they are even halfway decent people they will see the hilarity in this situation

Better to tell them you announced your mistake on 'FML...'
