OT..21st Century Blues


Recommended Posts

You know you're living in 2004 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 the person who works at the desk next to you.


5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.


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


7. You make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial "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. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.


13. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the screen.


14. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.


15. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.


16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)


17. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.


18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.


19. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.


20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list. AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.


Go on, forward this to your friends ...you know you want to!

I like it. I can even appreciate it being young. That's kind of sad, in and of itself. :)


I think I'll post that on the wall at work. By day, I'm a computer network administrator at my university newspaper. My boss will get a kick out of it, too, I'm sure!

With regards to #14, I saw a study a year or two ago where they found that people actually found it more difficult to perform sexually, and were less satisfied with their sexual relations when they were deprived of cell phone service.


As in, the researchers said "Ok fill out this survey about quality of life, now give us your cell phones, and a week later fill out the survey again and you can have your cell phone back" or something like that.


Sexual inadequacy and frustration...wow. What are we doing to ourselves with this technology??? On the bright side, my cell phone is now advanced enough that I can order some c!a1is or l,e,v,i,t,r,a from an online "drugstore" without even accessing a computer terminal (or getting a doctor's prescription, I am assured.)
