A jobless man applied for the job of janitor at Microsoft.
The HR manager interviewed him, then watched him clean the floor as a test.
"You are appointed," he said. "Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the forms to fill in".
The man replied, "But I've never owned a computer, so I don't have an an email."
"I'm sorry", said the HR manager. If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And he who does not 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 & buy a 10Kg tomato crate.
He then sold the tomatoes door-to-door. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital.
He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60.
The man realized that he could survive this way, and started to go earlier and return later every single day. Thus, his money grew quickly.
Not too long after, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles. Five years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the USA.
He started to plan his family's future and decided to have a life insurance policy. 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’ve succeeded to build this empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you'd had an email?!?"
The man thought for a while and replied, "Yes, I'd be a janitor at Microsoft."
