Life in 2005

I’m not sure that all of these apply to youth workers but they certainly do to those who manage to juggle the commercial world and voluntary youth work.
Made me laugh (and think)
You know that you’re living in 2005 when…..
1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. You have a list of 16 phone numbers to reach your family of four.
4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.
6. When you go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.
7. When you make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial ” 0 ” to get an outside line.
8. You’ve sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three different companies.
10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o’clock news.
11. Your boss doesn’t have the ability to do your job.
12. Contractors outnumber permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards. AND…………..
13. You read this entire list, and kept nodding and smiling.
14 As yo.u read this list, you think about forwarding it to your “friends.”
15. You got this from a friend that never talks to you anymore, except to send you jokes from the net.
16. You are too busy to notice there was no number 9.
17. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a number 9.
