The computer age

I've been ill for a couple of days - well, very ill as opposed to my usual ill - and was going to do a post on health but decided that would be too boring. Decided instead to see if I could get some funnies off the web about being past one's ell by date. Apart from the suggestion that I might want to consider giving up buying Long-Life Milk there didn't seem to be much so I settled for some ideas about the modern computer age instead.

You try to enter your password on the microwave.

You haven't played solitaire with a real deck of cards in years.

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

You e-mail your son in his room to tell him that dinner is ready, and he emails you back "What's for dinner?"

You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you haven't spoken to your next door neighbor yet this year.

Every commercial on television has a web-site address at the bottom of the screen.

You buy a computer and a week later it is out of date. and now sells for half the price you paid.

The concept of using real money, instead of credit or debit, to make a purchase is foreign to you.

Cleaning up the dining area means getting the fast food bags out of the back seat of your car.

Your reason for not staying in touch with family is that they do not have e-mail addresses.

You consider First Class next day delivery painfully slow.

Your dining room table has become a flat filing cabinet.

Your idea of being organized is having different colored post-it notes.

You hear most of your jokes via email instead of in person.
