The Janitor

Not really reliigious but here it is:

The Janitor


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 day."

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 employed."

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 individually
at 100% profit. 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 quickly. 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 and manages a staff of a hundred former
unemployed people, all selling tomatoes.

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 plan to fit his new circumstances. At the
end of the telephone conversation, the adviser asks him for his
e-mail address in order to send the final documents
electronically.

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 start!"

After a moment of thought, the tomato millionaire replied,

"Why, of course! I would be a floor cleaner at Microsoft!"
