    Ok, here's a joke with an interesting moral.

    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 10 kg 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!"


    Moral 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.


    4: If you do have a computer and e-mail, you're already being taken to
    the cleaners by Microsoft.
