Email from Richard to Max:

"Hi Max. This is Richard from next door. I've been riddled with guilt for a few months, and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. When you're not around, I've been sharing your wife, day and night, probably much more than you. I haven't been getting it at home recently. I know that's no excuse, but the temptation was just too great. I can't live with the guilt & hope you'll accept my sincere apologies. Please suggest a fee for usage and I'll pay you. Richard"

Enraged, Max grabbed his gun, went next door and rang Richard's doorbell. As soon as Richard opened the door he put a bullet through his forehead.

Max returned home, shot his wife as she lay in bed listening to the radio through her headphones, poured himself a stiff drink, and sat down on the sofa. He pulled out his phone, and noticed a new message in his inbox.

Email from Richard to Max:

"Hi Max. Richard here again. Sorry about the typo in my last email. I assume you figured it out and noticed that the darned spellcheck changed "wifi" to "wife." Technology, huh? It'll be the death of us all."
