You know your're living in 2012 when...


I know, this is old. I'm still going to leave it here.

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 text, Facebook or e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses, don't text, are not on Facebook or Twitter.

6. You go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.

7. You make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial "9" to get an outside line.

8. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.

10. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the screen, and sometimes these days hashtags. (didn't used to be like this. There used to be a phone number).

11. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

12. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
13. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)
14. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.
15. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
16. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.
17. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.
Go on, forward this to your friends know you want to.
