The technology has advanced so much today! Imagine how it is going to be after about 20 years!!! We might possess gadgets like the ones that Richie Rich has…press a button on your watch and it will turn into a helicopter.. Even the milkman will have a laptop probably with an ERP package to track the houses to which he has to deliver milk everyday and will have tables like MM_HOUSES_ALL, MM_COWS_ALL, MM_MILKCANS..lol.. Now almost all the kids have forgotten what it is like playing in the field with friends.. they are hooked to the computer games.. I remember how around 30 of us would meet in a field near my place and play Baseball daily.. we used to have so much of fun..but now even I spend free time playing computer games.. I have become addicted to the computer.. I cannot spend a single day without using the computer 😦 There will be a day in the future when we will have a daily routine of get up -> eat -> work using your computer -> eat -> work -> eat -> sleep.. what with shopping also being done on the net!
I had received a forward long back. But I liked it so much that I had never deleted it.
Here it goes..

Customer : “Heloo, can I order..”
Operator : “Can I have your multi purpose card number first, Sir?”
Customer : “It’s eh…, hold……….on……889861356102049998-45-54610”

Your home number is 409412366, your office 76452302 and your mobile is 0142662566.
Which number are you calling from now Sir?”
Customer : “Home! How did you get all my phone numbers?
Operator : “We are connected to the system Sir”
Customer : “May I order your Seafood Pizza…”
Operator : “That’s not a good idea Sir”
Customer : “How come?”
Operator : “According to your medical records, you have high blood pressure and even higher cholesterol level Sir”
Customer : “What?… What do you recommend then?”
Operator : “Try our Low Fat Hokkien Mee Pizza. You’ll like it”
Customer : “How do you know for sure?”
Operator : “You borrowed a book entitled “Popular Hokkien Dishes” from the National Library last week Sir”

Operator : “You can’t Sir. Based on the records, you’ve reached your daily limit on machine withdrawal today”
Customer : “Never mind just send the pizzas, I’ll have the cash ready. How long is it gonna take anyway?”
Operator : “About 45 minutes Sir, but if you can’t wait you can always come and collect it on your motorcycle…”
Customer : ” What!”
Operator : “According to the details in system, you own a Scooter…registration number 1123…”
Customer : ” ????”
Operator : “Is there anything else Sir?”
Customer : “Nothing… by the way… aren’t you giving me that 3 free bottles of cola as advertised?”
Operator : “We normally would Sir, but based on your records you’re also diabetic……. ”
Operator : “Better watch your language Sir. Remember on 15th July 1987 you were convicted of using abusive language on a policeman…?”
Customer : [Faints]
Hmm.. dont know what our future is going to be like!
