Tomato Story...

     A jobless man applied for the position of  'office boy' at Microsoft. The HR Manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.
"You are employed," he said "Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start."
The man replied, "But I don't have a computer, neither an e-mail."
"I'm sorry," said the HR Manager, "If you don't have an e-mail, 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 $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10kg 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 hom with $60.

     The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday.
     Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.
    5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US. He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a Life Insurance.
     He called an Insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded the broker asked his e-mail.
     The man replied, "I don't have an e-mail."
     The broker answered curiously, "You don't have an e-mail, and yet have succeeded to build an empire !" "Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an e-mail ?" The man thought for a while and replied, "Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft !"

Moral 1

Internet is not the solution to your life.

Moral 2

If you don't have Internet, but work hard, you can be a millionaire.

Moral 3

If you are receiving messages by e-mail, you are closer to being an office boy/girl, than a millionaire. :)
