You know your living in 2008 when.......................

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Preferred Realty

 

1. You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

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

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

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

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.  (Don't laugh, I've done this!)

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

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

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

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

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to send this blog to!

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

 

O.K.,, O.K.,,, changed it to 2008!  LOL  Didn't even realize it was 2007!  Haven't seen a 2008 version yet!

Hi Sandra, That was really cute.  But the heading confused me with "2007" so I was waiting for a different punch line!  Cheers, Harley

This is cute.  I was also waiting for something relating to the fact that we are in 2008.

I like #10 because I have to walk my 2 dogs (notice I say I have to walk them as I got tired of the walking, but they never do) and  when I get on the computer before they have a lease put on them they both come over to sit next to me and put a paw on me or brush up against my leg to let me know who is in charge and it's not me.

Actually I recognized myself in several other of the 14 that are listed.

Good morning chuckle ... and oh so true!  The phones about the cell phones and contact numbers surely ring true!
