Now a days everything needs a password. We deal with several different accounts for different things. I updated a password last Friday and today is Monday & for the life of me I can’t remember what the heck the password is. I try to use a certain theme for my passwords and this time I went off script because you can’t use a password that you’ve used before or something you’ve used in the last three passwords. Some passwords never change and some websites require you change your password every three months. That’s too much. Luckily one website decided that three months was too months so they changed it to every six months. The problem is it requires at least 14 characters at least two symbols and two numbers.
In the control room on a slow day I open only four accounts minimum. No, make it seven. I keep noticing something else I have to open. On a busy day it could be as many as thirteen. I’m sure I’m missing something. These are all work related. What about personal accounts? It’s different for everything. Just the other day I opened my Yahoo account I haven’t in that account since early June. I had over 800 e-mails.
Here at work I average 80 e-mails a day. There’s folders for each department or department head. Some people send as many as six in office e-mails a day. Am I supposed to make a folder for just one person in that department? Walk down the hall and talk to me face to face. On second thought don’t.
Remember the day when you knew all your friends and associates phone numbers in your head? Last month our dog Chico got sick. We took him to the emergency vet and I had a question for the vet when I got home. I dialed the number at the top of the bill. Do you know the number I called? It was my girlfriend sitting on the porch. She was with me at the vet and she gave them her number. I felt silly because I didn’t even recognize her number which she changed maybe a year ago probably longer. I don’t know everything’s in the phone.
The password is SH#$@%M^&*%1T!
