    An unemployed man is desperate to support his family of a wife and
    three kids. He applies for a janitor's job at a large firm and easily passes
    an aptitude test.

    The human resources manager says to him, "You will be hired at minimum
    wage of $5.35 an hour. Let me have your e-mail address so that we can
    get you in the loop. Our system will automatically e-mail you all the forms
    and advise you when to start and where to report on your first day."

    Taken back, the man protests that he is poor and has neither a
    computer nor an e-mail address. The manager replies, "You must understand that to
    a company like ours that means that you virtually do not exist. Without an
    e-mail address you can hardly expect to be employed by a high-tech firm.
    Good day."

    Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and having $10 in his
    wallet, he walks past a farmers' market and sees a stand selling 25 lb.
    crates of beautiful red tomatoes. He buys a crate, carries it to a busy
    corner and displays the tomatoes. In less than 2 hours he sells all the
    tomatoes and makes 100% profit. Repeating the process several times more
    that day, he ends up with almost $100 and arrives home that night with
    several bags of groceries for his family. During the night he decides to
    repeat the tomato business the next day. By the end of the week he is
    getting up early every day and working into the night. He multiplies his
    profits quickly.

    Early in the second week he acquires a cart to transport several boxes
    of tomatoes at a time, but before a month is up he sells the cart to buy a
    broken-down pickup truck.

    At the end of a year he owns three old trucks. His two sons have left
    their neighborhood gangs to help him with the tomato business, his wife is
    buying the tomatoes, and his daughter is taking night courses at the
    community college so she can keep books for him.

    By the end of the second year he has a dozen very nice used trucks and
    employs fifteen previously unemployed people, all selling tomatoes. He
    continues to work hard.

    Time passes and at the end of the fifth year he owns a fleet of nice
    trucks and a warehouse that his wife supervises, plus two tomato farms
    that the boys manage.

    The tomato company's payroll has put hundreds of homeless and jobless
    people to work. His daughter reports that the business grossed a million
    dollars. Planning for the future, he decides to buy some life insurance.
    Consulting with an insurance adviser, he picks an insurance plan to fit
    his new circumstances. Then the adviser asks him for his e-mail address in
    order to send the final documents electronically.

    The man replies that he doesn't have time to mess with a computer and
    has no e-mail address.

    The insurance man is stunned, "What, you don't have e-mail? No
    computer? No Internet? Just think where you would be today if you'd had all of
    that five years ago!"

    "Ha!" snorts the man. "If I'd had e-mail five years ago I would be
    sweeping floors at Microsoft and making $5.35 an hour."

    Which brings us to the moral of the story: Since you got this story by
    e-mail, you're probably closer to being a janitor than a millionaire.

    Sadly, I received it also . . .
