(A forwarded email from my stepfather.)

You know you're living in 2003 when...
1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years - or ever.
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
4. You e-mail your coworker who sits at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they do not have e-mail addresses.
6. When you go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.
7. When 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 11o'clock news.
11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.
12. Contractors outnumber permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards.

AND THE REAL CLINCHERS ARE...
13. You read this entire list, and kept nodding and smiling.
14. As you read this list, you thought about forwarding it to your "friends".
15. You got this email from a friend that never talks to you anymore, except to send you jokes from the net.
16. You are too busy to notice there was no No. 9.
17. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a No. 9.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they do not have e-mail addresses.

These days, it's become "My reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they do not have Livejournals." Sad, really.
but if i'm too busy to check if there's a #9, how can i find the time to scroll up and check? how, i ask you!?!?!
