The New Millennium

You know you’re a child of the millennium when:


You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.


You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.


You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.


You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.


Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.


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


You make phone calls from home and automatically dial "9" to get an outside line.


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 Every commercial on television has a Web site at the bottom of the screen.
13 Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you go back to get it.
14 You get up in the morning and immediately go online — even before getting your coffee.
15 You’ve begun tilting your head sideways to smile.
16 You’re reading this and nodding and laughing.
17 You know exactly to whom you are going to forward this page.
18 You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.
