What good is email?

Post by Gizmokid2005 » November 21st, 2007, 2:08 pm

An unemployed man is desperate to support
His family of a wife and three kids.

He applies for a janitor's j/b at a large firm
And easily passes an aptitude test.

The human resources manager tells him,
"You will be hired at minimum wage of $5.35 an hour.
Let me have your e-mail address so that we can
Get you in the loop. Our system will automatically
E-mail you all the forms and advise you when to start
And where to report on your first day.."

Taken back, the man protests that he is poor and
Has neither a computer nor an e-mail address.

To this the manager replies, "You must understand that
To a company like ours that means that you virtually do
Not exist. Without an e-mail address you can hardly expect
To be employed by a high-tech firm. Good day."


Stunned, the man leaves Not knowing where to turn and
Having $10 in his wallet, he walks past a farmers'
Market and sees a stand selling 25 lb. Crates of beautiful
Red tomatoes. He buys a crate, carries it to a busy
Corner and displays the tomatoes. In less than 2 hours
He sells all the tomatoes and makes 100% profit.
Repeating the process several times more that day,
He ends up with almost $100 and arrives home that night
With several bags of groceries for his family.

During the night he decides to repeat the tomato
Business the next day. By the end of the week he
Is getting up early every day and working into
The night. He multiplies his profits quickly.

Early in the second week he acquires a cart to
Transport several boxes of tomatoes at a time,
But before a month is up he sells the cart to buy
A broken-down pickup truck.

At the end of a year he owns three old trucks.
His two sons have left their neighborhood gangs
To help him with the tomato business, his wife
Is buying the tomatoes, and his daughter is taking
Night courses at the community college so she can
Keep books for him.

By the end of the second year he has a dozen very
Nice used trucks and employs fifteen previously
Unemployed people, all selling tomatoes. He
Continues to work hard.

Time passes and at the end of the fifth year he owns
A fleet of nice trucks and a warehouse that his wife
Supervises, plus two tomato farms that the boys manage.
The tomato company's payroll has put hundreds of
Homeless and jobless people to work. His daughter
Reports that the business grossed over one million dollars.

Planning for the future, he decides to buy some life insurance.

Consulting with an insurance adviser, he picks an
Insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. Then
The adviser asks him for his e-mail address
In order to send the final documents electronically.

When the man retires that he doesn't have time to mess
With a computer and has no e-mail address, the insurance
Man is stunned, "What, you don't have e-mail? No computer M
No Internet? Just think where you would be today if you'd
Had all of that five years ago!"

"Ha!" snorts the man. "If I'd had e-mail five years ago I would be
Sweeping floors at Microsoft and making $5.35 an hour."

No, i don't think that would be Michael someday. That boy living life without a computer, ha! It would only be a matter of time before he snaps and cries like a little baby in the corner of the room.
