AN OFFICE BOY AT MICROSOFT ~winks~

Froggy four eyes sent this to me this morning, thought i'd share...talking about this morning, I made a presentation on "stress at work" and to be honest 'I WAS TALKING TO MYSELF'...I get stressed by unnecessary things (Classic moi) and get all moody and blah blah... Oh well, I learnt a lot, hopefully, the others did too...
And what is it about making a presentation that gets people all squirmy and have this butterflyish feel??? I love making presentations and feeling all confident with myself but minutes before I step up to speak, I'm like 'O God help me!!!' Thankfully, He hasn't disappointed me. (Love you Jehovah)...


Back to Froggy's story...




A jobless man applied for the position of an "office boy" at Microsoft. The HR manager interviewed him, then watched him clean the floor as a test. "You are employed" he said." Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as a date when you may start". The man replied "But I don't have a computer, neither an email." "I'm sorry", said the HR manager, "If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job."


The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than 2 hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60. The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late.

 
Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles. 5 years later, the man became one of the biggest food retailers. He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance. He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied, "I don't have an email ". The broker answered curiously, "You don't have an email, and yet you have succeeded to build an empire. Can u imagine what you could have been if you had an email? !!"
The man thought for a while and replied, " Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft! "
I love this story....


Lessons; Close down your email accounts and start selling tomatoes. Right??? HAHAHAHA.....Just joking...


Have a great weekend...


Mwahhh....
