A jobless man applied for the position of office boy at a large company. He perfomed well and was offered the job. The interviewer said, "Now, I just need your email address to send you some documents to sign and verify, and then you can start".

The man replied, "I don't have a computer or an email account." "Oh, I  am sorry" said the interviewer. "without the email, we can't hire you."

The man left feeling frustrated. He had only $10 in his pocket, so he went to the market , bought a large create of tomatoes and began selling them door to door. In two hours, he succeeded in doubling his money.

He repeated the operation three times, and made $60. He realized that he could survive by this way, and stated to go earlier and returned later. Thus, his money double or tripled every day. Eventually he had earned enough to buy a cart, then a truck, and then a fleet of delivery vehicles.

Five years later the man's company was one of the biggest food retailers in the area. he started to plan his family's future, and was purchasing life insurance. he called an insurance broker and when the conversation concluded the broker asked him for his email address. The man replied. "I don't have an email address."

The broker said, "You don't have email, and yet you have built a small empire. Imagine what you could have become if you had emai!"

The man thought for a moment and said, 'I would have been an office boy.

Sometimes missing an opportunity is the best thing that can happen to us.

Is this a true story? Nice story although I do think email is important for communication today. I missed an opportunity to work at a health food store. Aparently having your BA is not enough qualifications to be a cashier. It all worked out because now Im a Realtor :D
