You know you are in 2008 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 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
  4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
  5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.
  6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.
  7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.
  8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
  9. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
  10. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )
  11. You’re reading this and nodding and laughing.
  12. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
  13. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.
  14. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t#9 on this list
  15. You desperately want to post this somewhere, on a blog or a tweet perhaps!!

I know, its a little bit old and a forward, but couldn’t help it.

  4. Hey this list is old. The year keeps changing according to the year you’re in.

    BTW the big k wanted to tell you that #13 is wrong.

    And #13 & #14 have nothing to do with 2008.
