Unintentional sexual harassment

I'm reviewing documents in a case and came on one that startled a guffaw out of me. It's written from a man in Company A to a woman in the same Company. Opening sentence: "Dear Mary: Thank you for the massage." Whew! Pretty hot stuff -- until I read the next sentence: "With the information you gave me, I can now open that computer file...." Oh, I get it: "Thanks for the message." I'm a little sorry it was so prosaic. For one lovely minute, I thought that, in the midst of an otherwise incredibly boring time pouring through someone else's communications messages, I'd stumbled across a hot office romance.
