MS office boy

A JOBLESS MAN APPLIED FOR THE POSITION OF "OFFICE BOY" AT MICROSOFT. THE HR
MANAGER INTERVIEWED HIM THEN WATCHED HIM CLEANING TH FLOOR AS A TEST.



"YOU ARE EMPLOYED" HE SAID. "GIVE ME YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AND I'LL SEND YOU
THE APPLICATION FORM TO FILL IN, AS WELL AS DATE WHEN YOU MAY START.



THE MAN REPLIED "BUT I DON'T HAVE A COMPUTER, NEITHER AN E-MAIL".



"I'M SORRY", SAID THE HR MANAGER. "IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN E-MAIL, THAT MEANS
YOU DO NOT EXIST. AND WHO DOESN'T EXIST CANNOT HAVE THE JOB."



THE MAN LEFT WITH NO HOPE AT ALL. HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, WITH ONLY
$10.00 IN HIS POCKET. HE THEN DECIDED TO GO TO THE SUPERMARKET AND BUY A
10KG TOMATO CRATE. HE THEN SOLD THE TOMATOES IN A DOOR TO DOOR ROUND.



IN LESS THAN 2 HOURS, HE SUCCEEDED TO DOUBLE HIS CAPITAL. HE REPEATED THE
OPERATION THREE TIMES, AND RETURNED HOME WITH $60.00.



THE MAN REALIZED THAT HE CAN SURVIVE BY THIS WAY, AND STARTED TO GO EVERYDAY
EARLIER, AND RETURN LATE. THUS, HIS MONEY DOUBLED OR TRIPLED EVERY DAY.
SHORTLY, HE BOUGHT A CART, THEN A TRUCK, AND THEN HE HAD HIS OWN FLEET OF OF
DELIVERY VEHICLES.



5 YEARS LATER, THE MAN IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST FOOD RETAILERS IN THE UNITED
STATES. HE STARTED TO PLAN HIS FAMILY'S FUTURE, AND DECIDED TO HAVE A LIFE
INSURANCE. HE CALLED AN INSURANCE BROKER, AND CHOSE A PROTECTION PLAN. WHEN
THE CONVERSATION WAS CONCLUDED, THE BROKER ASKED HIM HIS E-MAIL. THE MAN
REPLIED, "I DON'T HAVE AN E-MAIL".



THE BROKER ANSWERED CURIOUSLY, "YOU DON'T HAVE AN E-MAIL, AND YET HAVE
SUCCEEDED TO BUILD AN EMPIRE. CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT YOU COULD HAVE BEEN IF
YOU HAD AN E-MAIL?!!"



THE MAN THOUGHT FOR A WHILE AND REPLIED, "YES, I'D BE AN OFFICE BOY AT
MICROSOFT!!!"







MORAL OF THE STORY



1) INTERNET IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO YOUR LIFE.

2) IF YOU DON'T HAVE INTERNET, AND YOU WORK HARD, YOU CAN BE A
MILLIONAIRE.

3) IF YOU RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE BY E-MAIL, YOU ARE CLOSER TO BEING AN
OFFICE BOY/GIRL, THAN A MILLIONAIRE.......
