10 Reasons Your Child Will Work for Microsoft

Communications Manager with Microsoft, Kristina Libby (pictured to the left), has recently made public a list of 10 ways you will know that when your child grows up, he or she will work for the Redmond-based software giant. “There is a cool culture that surrounds living and working in the Pacific Northwest with smart, driven and talented individuals. It sort of makes you wonder how one gets here,” said Kristina Libby.

Serious or not, the list deserves taking a look at. So without any further ado, here are the 10 Ways You Know Your Child Will Grow Up to Be a Microsoft Employee:

Advertising

Reason #1 – They would much rather visit Windows.com than Disney.com when surfing the web.
Reason #2 – They dress worse in real life than they dress their Xbox avatars. The avatars are better dresses than they are.
Reason #3 – To show their friends new toys, they make a PowerPoint presentation.
Reason #4 – When they were babies, they preferred the bendy Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse over their bottle.
Reason #5 – Not Dora the Explorer, but Internet Explorer is their favorite.
Reason #6 - Play dates take place via Messenger video chat on their PC.
Reason #7 – When you want to put them to sleep, you have to put the Windows Start sound on repeat.
Reason #8 – They walk around the house shouting “Developers! Developers! Developers!” just like Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer did once during a presentation.
Reason #9 – They don’t use a calculator for their math homework, they use Microsoft Bing instead.
Reason #10 – They replaced your Windows 7 theme with the Justin Bieber theme.

Kristina Libby said that this an “informative, super serious and deeply researched list of how you know your child will grow up to be a Microsoft Windows Employee.” But she is obviously joking. I thought the list to be quite amusing and that’s why I shared it with you.
