Due to our ongoing technical difficulties the last several months, it was determined guidelines were needed to assess our relationship with our computers.
The following list is what came about.
Some of these we have heard somewhere and some we created ourselves.
1. You wake up at 2 O'clock in the morning to go to the bathroom and stop to check your email on the way back to bed.
2. You turn off your computer and get an awful empty feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
3. You decide to stay in college for an additional year or two, just for the free Internet access.
4. You laugh at people with 28.8 modems.
5. You start using smileys :-) in your snail mail.
6. You find yourself typing "com" after every period when using a word processor.com
7. You can't correspond with your mother because she doesn't have a computer.
8. When your email box shows "no new messages" and you feel really depressed.
9. You don't know the gender of your three closest friends because they have nondescript screen name and you never bothered to ask.
10. You move into a new house and you decide to "Netscape" before you landscape.
11. Your family and friends notify you of deaths via email and facebook.
12. In real life conversations, you don't laugh, you just say "LOL, LOL".
13. You start calling burned dinners Cajun Cuisine, because you were on the computer instead of paying attention to dinner.
14. You schedule your social life around access to a computer, because you might miss a message.
15. You choose where to live based on Internet availability and quality of reception.
16. After reading this message, you immediately check your inbox to see if anyone has forwarded it you and then you forward it to a friend!
We hope you had a good laugh as was our intent.
