An unemployed man goes to apply for a job
with Microsoft as a janitor.
The manager there arranges for him to take an aptitude test (Section:
Floors, sweeping and cleaning).

After the test, the manager says, “You
will be employed at minimum wage,
$5.15 an hour. Let me have your e-mail address, so that I can send you a
form to complete and tell you where to report for work on your first

Taken aback, the man protests that he has
neither a computer nor an e-mail
address.To this the MS manager replies, “Well, then, that means that you
virtually don’t exist and can therefore hardly expect to be

Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where
to turn and having only $10 in
his wallet, he decides to buy a 25 lb. flat of tomatoes at the supermarket.
Within less than 2 hours, he sells all the tomatoes inidually at 100%

Repeating the process several times more
that day, he ends up with almost
$100 before going to sleep that night. And thus it dawns on him that he
could quite easily make a living selling tomatoes. Getting up early every
day and going to bed late, he multiplies his profits

After a short time he acquires a cart to
transport several dozen boxes of
tomatoes, only to have to trade it in again so that he can buy a pick-up
truck to support his expanding business.

By the end of the second year, he is the
owner of a fleet of pick-up trucks
manages a staff of a hundred former unemployed people, all selling

Planning for the future of his wife and
children, he decides to buy some life
insurance. Consulting with an insurance adviser, he picks an insurance
At the end of the telephone conversation, the adviser asks him for his
address in order to send the final documents

When the man replies that he has no e-mail,
the adviser is stunned, “What,
you don’t have e-mail? How on earth have you managed to amass such
wealth without the Internet, e-mail and e-commerce? Just imagine where
you would be now, if you had been connected to the internet from the very

After a moment of thought, the tomato
millionaire replied, “Why, of course!
I would be a floor cleaner at Microsoft!”

Moral of this story:

1. The Internet, e-mail and e-commerce
do not need to rule your life.

2. If you don’t have e-mail, but work hard,
you can still become a millionaire.

3. Seeing that you got this story via e-mail,
you’re probably closer to
a janitor than you are to becoming a millionaire.

4. If you do have a computer and e-mail, you
have already been taken to
cleaners by Microsoft.

Marketing Explained

The buzz word in today’s business world is marketing. However, people often ask for a simple explanation of the concept.

Well, here it is — everything you need to know about marketing.

You’re a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, “I’m fantastic in bed.”

That’s Direct Marketing.



You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One
of your friends goes up to him and, pointing at you, says, “She’s
fantastic in bed.”

That’s Advertising.

You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his
telephone number. The next day you call and say, “Hi, I’m fantastic in

That’s Telemarketing.

You see a guy at a party, you straighten your dress. You walk up to
him and pour him a drink. You say, “May I?” and reach up to straighten
his tie, brushing your breast lightly against his arm, and then say, “By
the way, I’m fantastic in bed.”

That’s Public Relations.

You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, “I hear you’re fantastic in bed.”

That’s Brand Recognition.

You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend.

That’s a Sales Representative.

Your friend can’t satisfy him so he calls you.

That’s Tech Support.

You’re on your way to a party when you realize that there could be
handsome men in all these houses you’re passing. So you climb onto the
roof of one situated towards the center and shout at the top of your
lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!”

That’s Spam.
