I’ve created accounts with hundreds and hundreds of websites. Whenever I set up an account, I have about 6-8 variations on a few passwords that I use. I know, I know…I should change my passwords more often, create really unique ones, get a little funky with symbols and numbers and such…but I’m just not that good. Usually, it takes me all 8 tries to finally find the one I’ve used for any given website. Okay, sometimes it takes me a dozen tries.
And then there are days like today. This morning, I read a blog that mentioned a website I used to really love, but haven’t used in a few years. I wanted to go back and revisit it. I entered my email and tried my password, and tried my other password, and tried….well, none of my dozen attempts worked. I even tried variations that included capitals in various places, but I just wasn’t getting in. I clicked the “Forgot your password?” link to have it emailed to me, but they didn’t email it quickly enough, and I’m obviously impatient. So guess what I did…yup…I created a new account. Has anyone else ever done this?
So, in honor of password forgetfulness, I’m sharing a little humor to kick of your weekend! Do yourself a favor and watch this funny fella named Don Friesen help me feel that I’m not alone.
