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..
Operator : “Thank you for calling Pizza Hut . May I have your…”
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”
Operator : “OK… you’re… Mr Singh and you’re calling from 17 Jalan Kayu.
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”
Customer : “OK I give up… Give me three family size ones then, how much will that cost?”
Operator : “That should be enough for your family of 10, Sir. The total is $49.99”
Customer : “Can I pay by credit card?”
Operator : “I’m afraid you have to pay us cash, Sir. Your credit card is over the limit and you owe your bank $3,720.55 since October last year.That’s not including the late payment charges on your housing loan, Sir.”
Customer : “I guess I have to run to the neighbourhood ATM and withdraw somecash before your guy arrives”
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!
hahaha.. nice post. belive it or not, I hav a similar idea in mind, wich i ws planning to write as a short story.
neway, keep posting such cute ones.
😀 post it soon then..waiting to read it!
I read it long time back and loved it!!! It is so relevant. Still grinning
Thanks Ritu.. everytime I read it, I end up laughing too 🙂 That was one of the best forwards I ever got in my email!
ROFL! I’ve received this one too!
Ahahaha! 😀 This was a totally ROFL post. I remember seeing a similar video on Google where they store just too much information. Anyway this post showed up in my Reader and am glad I read it. 🙂
Wondering how this post suddenly popped up in the reader after 4 yrs 😛 god knows!
Thanks Ajay.. Even I liked this forward a lot..
LOL! Had rxed that one on mail too.
I just hope and pray life does not become so mechanical 😛 We r better off dng some things using our hands and legs 🙂
😀 yep praying that our life doesnt become too mechanical..
oh I had never read it..so true!! 😀
yep really loved this article 🙂
lolzz … read this one before … awesome it izzzz 😉 😉
I don’t think life can ever become mechanical. We will have our own challenges, for which we need to work and work hard. About the information proliferation, I don’t know whether its good or not… Something similar to what you have written is already happening in the enterprise ERP!!
yep hope so..they have so much of data about every individual that it really scares me.. in a way, it was better in those good old days..
I stumbled upon your blog today and all your posts are just awesome and this one is too good.
