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 pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries. 7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen. 8. 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. 10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee. 11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : ) 12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing. 13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message. 14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list. 15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

#3 I saw in effect last night: my friends' girls have cell phones...then they have friends that they are to call 'in case they are busy', so for a family of four, I think they have 40 or so numbers! (They did remove the work numbers since they're both unemployed). #6 I've had to do because I'm so tired sometimes I need help (damn MS). My mom used to bring in the perishables and tell my dad, "Oh, there's groceries in the trunk". Wish I had that kind of service! #10 He11, I don't even wait to get out of bed, I access the internet on my iPhone! #11 I do that because I look cuter that way! #12 OF COURSE, this list is hysterical!

40 numbers for a family of four it may take a hell lot of time to reach them At least they removed their work numbers 6 In older days people used to arrive home on a HORSE(any animal with legs) and carried THE groceries themselves eventhough travel was a lot more tough those days 10 hey you live in 2020 that is a gr8 thing to do 12 yeah Thanks for responding Have a gr7 time Njoy

#6 for me was because I was exhausted but my mom was just spoiled. Wish I could find someone to spoil ME! As for #10, the newer Smart Phones (like the iPhone) enable one to access the internet from nearly anywhere...it's one of the few technical gadgets I allowed myself!

i hope the whole thing is a joke . but there are people in such cases in this generations used to the cyber objects that the do not do anything physically either exercise or a little bit of work people even dont switch off their tv's if you ask they tell who will get up or they'll tell it doesn't consume much power if i switch it off with the REMOTE but in this age where energy matters i say that start working and save energy in this passion even you cam become physically fit......

Forget the #9, where the heck is a number 47??? I was nodding and laughing the entire time I was reading this, yes; and I DID go online before having my coffee too! Are you psychic? What if I don't have a driveway or a microwave? Can I enter my password into the fridge instead? My coffee arrived while I was mid-mylot though, so does this mean I'm sort of on the fence with that one? Who am I supposed to forward the message to by the way? (I need some help deciding on that one) I also know it's 2009 'cos my Mum told me.
