Joke 178

18 Sep

You know it is time to reassess your relationship with your computer when….

  • You wake up at four in the morning to go to the bathroom and stop to check your email on the way back to bed.
  • You turn off your computer and get an awful empty feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
  • You decide to stay in university for another year, just for the free internet access.
  • You laugh at people with 28.8 modems.
  • You start using smileys 🙂 in your snail mail.
  • You find yourself typing “com” after every period when using a word
  • You can’t correspond with your mother because she doesn’t have a computer.
  • When your email inbox shows “no new messages” you feel really depressed.
  • You don’t know the gender of your three closest friends because they have nondescript screen names and you never bothered to ask.
  • Your family always knows where you are.
  • In real life conversations, you don’t laugh, you just say “LOL, LOL.”
  • After reading this message, you immediately forward it to a friend.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
