Keeping up

An old friend just sent this:
I generally don't ever forward anything I receive via e-mail
because these things sometimes are unwelcome.
This one made me laugh so I am posting it here.

You Know You Are Living In The Year 2003 When...

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

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

Your grandmother asks you to send her a JPEG file of your newborn so she can create a screen saver.

You're within 10 minutes of your door and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.

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

You buy a computer and 3 months later it's out of date and sells for half the price you paid.

Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 or 40 years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go get it.

Using real money, instead of credit or debit, to make a purchase would be a hassle and take planning.

You forget what password you used for your last transaction.

You consider second-day air delivery painfully slow.

Your dining room table is now your flat filing cabinet.

Your idea of being organized is multiple-colored Post-it Notes.

You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.

You get an extra phone line so you can get phone calls.

You disconnect from the Internet and get this awful feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

You get up in the morning and go on-line before getting your coffee.

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

You're reading this and nodding and laughing. Even worse; you know exactly who you are going to forward this to...

If you nodded at even half these comments, you understand.
