19102 (Y2K + 1)

Most programmers would spot the title being based on an old erroneous fix for the Y2K bug (programmers just stuck a '19' in front of the year). Well I received an email about how we can tell that we survived Y2K ...
You know you're living after Y2K when.....
1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
4. You e-mail your mate who works at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they do not have e-mail addresses.
6. When you go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner. [I answer the phone at work as if I was at home]
7. When you make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial "0" to get an outside line.
8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three different companies.
10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o'clock news.
11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.
12. Contractors outnumber permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards.

and the real clinchers are...

13. You read this entire list, and kept nodding and smiling.
14. As you read this list, you think about forwarding it to your "friends".
15. You got this e-mail from a friend that never talks to you any more, except to send you jokes from the net.
16. You are too busy to notice there was no No. 9.
17. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a No.9. (Bet you all did this one!?!?!?)
