The pace of life seems to be getting faster and faster and faster, and with this dizzyingly fast pace, stress levels are just going up and up and up.

So to just brighten up your day a bit, to reduce those stress levels, I've put together this list (don't worry, it will only set you back three minutes, yes you have got the time) - read this, have a laugh, then get back to work.

Signs You Are Definitely a 21st Century Citizen

5. You consider 2nd day air delivery painfully slow.

6. Your idea of being organized is multiple coloured post-it notes.
