je weet dat het 2001 is

Please read this from top till bottom:

You know you’re living in the year 2001 when:

  • You try to enter your password on the microwave.
  • You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.
  • You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.
  • You e-mail your buddy who works at the desk next to you.
  • Your reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they do not have e-mail addresses.
  • When you go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.
  • When you make phone calls from home, you accidentally insert a “9” to get an outside line.
  • You’ve sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three different companies.
  • Your company’s welcome sign is attached with Velcro.
  • You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o’clock news.
  • Your resume is on a diskette in your pocket.
  • Your biggest loss from a system crash was when you lost all of your best jokes.
  • Your supervisor doesn’t have the ability to do your job.
  • Contractors out number permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards.
  • Board members salaries are higher than all the Third World countries annual budgets combined.
  • Interviewees, despite not having the relevant knowledge or experience, terminate the interview when told of the starting salary.
  • Free food left over from meetings is your staple diet.
  • Your supervisor gets a brand-new state-of-the-art laptop with all the latest features, while you have time to go for lunch while yours boots up.
  • Being sick is defined as you can’t walk or you’re in hospital.
  • There’s no money in the budget for the five permanent staff your department desperately needs, but they can afford four full-time management consultants advising your boss’s boss on strategy.
  • Your relatives and family describe your job as “works with computers”.

and the clinchers are…

  • You read this entire list, and kept nodding and smiling.
  • As you read this list, you thought about forwarding it to your “friends”
  • It crosses your mind that your jokes group may have seen this list already, but you don’t have time to check so you forward it anyway.
  • You got this email from a friend that never talks to you anymore, except to send you jokes from the net.
  • This email has 20 different disclaimer notes at the bottom, telling you that the information is confidential, but you forward it anyway.

Thanks to dayzed.
