Telephone ReceiverA fresher joined a big MNC as a trainee. On his first day, he dialed the pantry and shouted into the phone, “Get me a coffee, quickly!”

The voice from the other side responded, “You fool you’ve dialed the wrong extension! Do you know who you’re talking to, dumbo?”

“No,” replied the fresher.

“It’s the Managing Director of the company, you fool!”

“No.” replied the Managing Director indignantly.

“Good!” replied the trainee and put down the phone.

Spam MailMost of the website collects the email id when you either want to see the contents of the site or download software or something from their sites though they promise you that they keep your email id confidential. You can’t trust all these sites and you will really reluctant to give your email id to some websites.

The solution is to use a disposable email service. There are so many service providers gives this facility. I found this one, PookMail.com , as the simple and best solution.

}
