    sell tomatoes

    I got this through email:

    A jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft.
    The HR manager interviewed him, then a test: clean the floor.
    "You are engaged" he said, give me your e-mail address, and I'll send you the application to fill, as well as when you will start.
    The man replied " 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 10US$ in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10 Kg 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 US$.
    The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late.
    Thus, his money doubles or triples every day.
    Shortly later, 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 U. S.
    He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.
    He called an insurance broker, and choose 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 replied curiously, you don't have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Do you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?!!
    The man thought for a while, and replied: an office boy at Microsoft!

    The moral of this 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 be an office boy, rather than a millionaire...

    Have a great day,

    P.S. Do no reply on this e-mail, I am going to sell . . . Tomatoes

    Why not sell tomatoes on your web site best of both worlds (it would have to be done by fax though - not pesky email.

    The market's become saturated! Numerous people have become millionaires by selling tomatoes, and now the market cannot handle anymore. One year and a few thousand mergers later, we are left with one company: Microsoft^H^H^H^Htomato.

    Five times a day I have to call my host and have them reboot this networked vegetable I have hooked up to their switch. The last time I called them they told me it had green mold growing out of it, which is unbelievable considering it's really hot around it. I guess I will have to send them a new vegetable to store data on.

    Get farm pictures so it really looks like you're growing the servers from the ground.
