    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 go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.

    7. 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 11 o'clock news.

    11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.

    12. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.

    13. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the screen.

    14. 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.

    15. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.

    16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)

    17. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

    18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

    19. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

    20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

    AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.

    Good One!! At my work we only use 5 digits (6-**** or 7-****) for in-house calls. I've caught myself when trying to call work from home doing the same thing...doesn't work well there!

    I don't know how things are on your side of the pond yet but over here smoking indoors is all but illegal (actually it IS illegal in lot's of places). I was watching a show on TV tonight and saw a woman smoking in an office. My first thought was "wow I remember when you could do that!!"

    Worse than that, my college now has official "smoking zones." And these aren't inside the buildings, you can't smoke inside any building, they're outside. You can only smoke in about 3 places on campus. Horrible, how can they say you can't smoke outside except for 3 specific spots!? I don't even smoke and don't really plan too but that is messed up. I almost feel like taking up cigars just to break the damn rule.
