Missives From Home

This just in from my grandmother, who communicates solely via chain emails.

Subject: FW: Very Serious Warning [ALSO TELL YOUR CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDREN FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI HOSPITAL …..VERY SERIOUS WARNING…

*I do this all the time! I guess I won’t be doing it ANY more !*
*A few days ago, a person was recharging his mobile phone at home.*
*Just at that time a call came in and he answered it with the charging Instrument still connected to the outlet.*
*After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained** *
*and the young man was thrown to the floor with a heavy thud. As you can see, the phone actually exploded.*
*His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with a weak**
**heartbeat and burnt fingers.*
*He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.*
*Cell phones are a very useful modern invention.*
*However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death.*
*Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the electrical outlet! If
you are charging the cell phone and a call comes in, unplug it from the
charger and outlet.*
*FORWARD THIS TO THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER IN YOUR LIFE!!!!*
Whether or not they have a cell phone. They can also inform others who do……

The best part of this email was that everyone who had forwarded it automatically added the “Sent from my iPhone” message.
