The Hazard of "Hess"

I'm betting you have no idea how versatile a name like "Hess" can be. I know I didn't until a number of years after I actually became one. Here is the first of two illustrations for you. The second will show up in another post. For now, here's story number one.

Years ago, a letter came to my husband in the mail. I grabbed it from the mailbox and got in the car. He and I were heading someplace. I looked through the envelopes to discern what was for me and what was for him. Then....there was an envelope with his first name on it followed by a TERRIBLE typo.

Take a moment and look at your computer keyboard...

It seems that, after typing the "H" and "e," the person who did the data entry mistook the left-hand ring finger for his/her right-hand ring finger.

Go ahead...look at your keyboard. Yup. That's a bit of a problem.
