Life without Email or Internet!!

A jobless man applied for the position of “office boy” at Microsoft.

The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

“You are employed.” He said.” Give me your e-mail address and I’ll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.”

The man replied “But I don’t have a computer, neither an email.”

I’m sorry”, said the HR manager, “If you don’t have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn’t exist, cannot have the job.”

The man left with no hope at all. He didn’t know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital.

He repeated the Operation three times, and returned home with $60.

The man realized that he can survive by this Way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

5 years later , the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US .

He started to plan his family’s future, and decided to have a life insurance.

He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied, “I don’t have an email”. The broker answered curiously, “You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?!!”

The man thought for a while and replied, “Yes, I’d be an office boy at Microsoft!”

Moral of the story:

M1 – Internet is not the solution to your life.
M2 – If you don’t have internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.
M3 – If you received this message by email, you are closer to being an office boy, than a millionaire. ………

Have a great day!!!
Pls Note: – Do not forward this stuff to me back, I’m closing all my email addresses & going to sell tomatoes!!!
Smiling after reading is not mandatory!!! !

    Science and technology makes our life easier. We must not miss this point. We must not also depend wholly on it.

    Hi Sara, have read this e-mail earlier, but it is still valid
    however, lets to face it the internet e-mail & IT now a days has become a part of our daily life necessities that if we want to be aware if our surroundings.
    and at mean while the GOD says “Mennik al Haraka wa Minni al-Baraka” (you make the move and I will reward you with my blessing). or other says is ” men Jaddah wajad wa men zara’a hassad” mean (who makes the effort to plant
    then its return value will be the fruits). so yes, I want to have my e-mail and in’t and so to sel tomato..

    People can make it by hard work and dedication to the chosen career. but all the same it is apparent that email and Internet are lights to better living.

    The destiny of a man when calling, no folly or smartness can change it. May we be lucky in deciding for our lives.

    Very true the internet is not the solution for everything

  23. omar April 25, 2010 at 2:17 PM #

    But still MS- i.e. Microsoft stands high to be the solution to your becoming a Millionaire. No Microsoft then he would then still be without job.
