Okay, this is kinda related to Winona’s 1980s thread.

You know you’re living in the modern world when…

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

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 3.

4. You e-mail your mate 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 dial “0” or “9” to get an outside line.

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

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

11. Your boss doesn’t ! have the ability to do your job.

12. Contractors out number permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards.

AND THE REAL CLINCHERS ARE .

13. You read this entire list, and kept nodding and smiling.

14. As you read this list, you think about forwarding it to your “friends”.

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

16. You are too busy to notice there was no No. 9

17. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a No.9

18. AND NOW YOU ARE LAUGHING AT YOUR STUPIDNESS.

Similar to # 6….

When *I* am calling someone, I either advise, “This is Maegan in the Tampa CLRU”, (even when that person has NO idea what a Tampa CLRU is) or if I get a voicemail with a beep, I say, “Thank you for calling Xxxxxxxxxxx, this is Maegan, how can I help you?”  Then I realize that it’s a voicemail…and apologize to whoever will be listening later.

If you can’t handle someone at their worst,

You don’t deserve them at their best.
