An unemployed man goes to try for a job with Microsoft as a cleaner.

The manager there arranges for an aptitude test (Section: Floors, sweeping and cleaning). After the test, the manager says: You will be appointed on the scale of $30 per day. Let me have your e-mail address, so that I can send you a form to complete and advise you where to report for work on your first day.

Taken aback, the unemployed man protests that he is neither in possession of a computer nor of an e-mail address. To this the MS manager replies: Well, then, that really means that you virtually don't exist and can therefore hardly expect to be employed. Stunned, the man leaves.

Not knowing where to turn and only having about $10 left, he decides to buy a 10kg box of tomatoes at the supermarket. Within less than 2 hours, he sells the tomatoes singly at 100% profit. Repeating the process several times more that day, he ends up with almost $100 before going to sleep that night. And thus it dawns on the man that he could quite easily make a living selling tomatoes. Getting up early and earlier every day and going to bed late and later, he multiplies his hoard of profits in quite a short time.

Not too long thereafter, he acquires a cart to transport several dozen boxes of tomatoes, only to have to trade it in again shortly afterwards on a pick-up truck. By the end of the second year, he is the owner of a fleet of pick-up trucks and manages a staff of a hundred former unemployed people, all selling tomatoes.

Considering the future of his wife and children, he decides to buy some life assurance. Calling an insurance adviser, he picks an insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. At the end of the telephone conversation, the adviser asks him for his e-mail address in order that he might forward the documentation.

When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the adviser is stunned: "What, you don't even have e-mail? How on earth have you managed to amass such wealth without the Internet, e-mail and e-commerce? Just imagine where you would have been by now, if you had been connected from the very start!"

After a moment's silence, the tomato millionaire replied: "Sure! I would have been a cleaner at Microsoft!"

Morals of the story:

  1. The Internet, e-mail and e-commerce do not need to rule your life.
  2. If you don't have e-mail, but work hard, you can still become a millionaire.
  3. Seeing that you got this story via e-mail, you're probably closer to becoming a cleaner than you are to becoming a millionaire.

Bill Gates died in a car accident. He found himself in Purgatory . . .

. . . being sized up by God. "Well, Bill. I'm really confused on this call. I'm not sure whether to send you to Heaven or Hell. After all, you enormously helped society by putting a computer in almost every home in the world and yet you created that ghastly Windows 95. I'm going to do something I've never done before. In your case I'm going to let you decide where you want to go".

Bill replied, "Well, thanks, God. What's the difference between the two?"

God said, "I'm willing to let you visit both places briefly if it will help you make a decision".

"Fine, but where should I go first?"

God said, "I'm going to leave that up to you". Bill said, "OK, then let's try Hell first".

So, Bill went to Hell. It was a beautiful clean sandy beach with Clear waters. There were thousands of beautiful women running around, playing in the water, laughing and frolicking about. The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect.

Bill was very pleased.

"This is great"! he told God.

"If this is Hell, I REALLY want to see Heaven!"

"Fine", said God and off they went.

Heaven was a high place in the clouds, with angels drifting about playing harps and singing. It was nice, but not as enticing as Hell. Bill thought for a quick minute and rendered his decision. "Hmm, I think I prefer Hell" he told God.

"Fine" retorted God, "as you desire".

So Bill Gates went to Hell. Two weeks later God decided to check up on the late billionaire to See how he was doing in Hell. When God arrived in Hell he found Bill shackled to a wall, screaming amongst the hot flames in a dark cave. He was being burned and tortured by demons.

"How's everything going, Bill?" God asked.

Bill responded, his voice full of anguish and disappointment, "This is awful, this is not what I expected. I can't believe this happened. What happened to that other place with the beaches and then beautiful women playing in the water?"

God says, "That was the screen saver".

Remember all the warnings this year that this was the real year of Y2K?

It was the week after Christmas and all through the house,
Not one pc was working not even a mouse.
I turned on the power but nothing was working,
I grab the computer and start banging and jerking.

I laid out three grand for this big piece of junk,
On January 1st the damn thing went "kerplunk"!
When I threw it out the window it made such a clatter,
My neighbor just called to see what's the matter.

I turned on the TV the cable is down,
My microwave oven is making weird sounds.
My new VCR is as dead as a rock,
Not one light is blinking not even the clock.

It's twenty below the peak of snow season,
The furnace won't work the pipes are all freezing,
This couldn't have happened at a worse time,
I think I have frostbite on my behind.

I laughed for a second and thought it all funny,
Then a call from my bank in regards to my money.
"We managed your pension and savings with care,
But for some odd reason your money's not there

I drop the receiver to the bathroom I rush,
I push down the handle the toilet won't flush.
I turned on the faucet not one drop hits the sink,
I head out the door to the pub for a drink.

I jump in the car turn the key in the switch,
It only goes "click" I scream, "son of a bitch!"
A computerized ignition has just sealed my fate,
Not set up for the "2000" date.

I twitch like a madman this cannot be true,
No car, heat, or money what the hell can I do.
Shouting obscenities as I ran out of sight,
Happy y2k to all it's been one hell of a night!
