You know you're living in 2002 when....

(Ok, we have had the old time post, this is the current day post. Some of these are so true it is scary)

You know you're living in 2002 when....

1. You have 5 passwords, but can only remember one.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your
family of three.

4. You e-mail your buddy who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends
is that they do not have e-mail addresses.

6. When you go home after a long day at work you still
answer the phone in a business manner.

7. When you make phone calls from home, you
accidentally insert a "9 or 0" to get an outside line.

8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and
worked for three different companies.

9. Your company's welcome sign is attached with Velcro.

10. Your Curriculum Vitae is on a floppy disk in your pocket.

11. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o'clock news.

12. Your biggest loss from a system crash was when you
lost all of your best jokes.

13. Your supervisor doesn't have the ability to do your job.

14. Contractors outnumber permanent staff and are more
likely to get long-service awards.

15. Board members salaries are higher than all the
Third World countries annual budgets combined.

16. Interviewees, despite not having relevant
knowledge or experience, terminate the interview when
told of the starting salary.

17. Free food left over from meetings is your staple diet.

18. 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.

19. Being sick is defined as you can't walk or you're
in hospital.

20. There's no money in the budget for the five
permanent staff your department desperately needs, but
they can afford four full-time management con******ts
advising your boss's boss on strategy.


21. You read this entire list, and kept nodding and

22. As you read this list, you think about forwarding
it to your "friends".

23. 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.

24. You got this email from a friend that never talks
to you anymore, except to send you jokes from the net.

Good one Ken. Hate to admit that I answered most of these with yes...

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
