Internet & Toilet Cleaning

An unemployed worker applies at XXCompany for the position of a janitor. The HR chief invites him to an interview and subjects him to some tests. Then he tells him: You got the job, just give me your e-mail address so that I can send you the employment contract as well as the day and time when to start. The man is distraught and answers that he has no computer and therefore also no e-mail. The HR boss tells him that if he has no e-mail address he virtually does not exist and therefore cannot hold a job.

The man leaves in a desperate mood without knowing what to do with his last $10 in his pocket. Finally he decides to go into a supermarket and to buy a 10 lb box of strawberries. He starts out with door to door calls in order to sell those strawberries by the pound. He manages to double his capital in 2 hours. He repeats the deal 3 times more and goes home with $60 in his pocket.

He comes to see that he can survive this way. He starts every day earlier and comes home every day later. So he triples or quadruples his money every day. A short time later he buys a wheel barrow, then exchanges it later into a truck and sooner or later is the owner of a complete fleet of delivery trucks.

5 year go by…

The man is now the owner of one of the largest food chain in the USA. Now he starts thinking about the future for him and his family and decides to buy a life insurance. He calls an agent and selects a good policy. At the end of the negotiations the agents asks him for his e-mail address to send him a confirmation of the policy. The man tells him that he doesn’t have an e-mail address! That is strange, says the agent, you have no e-mail and nevertheless you built this large empire. Can you imagine where you would be if you you had an e-mail address.

The man briefly thinks and then answers: I WOULD BE A TOILET CLEANER AT XXCompany

Moral of the story:
The internet does not solve all the problems in our lives!
