New Password Rejected!

Uh oh. That last one will be the hardest to find.

I once gave my high school advanced Spanish class an assignment to create a skit for the rest of the class, in Spanish, of course. One of my very best students came to me and said, in Spanish, “We have a problem. We want to stage an Aztec sacrifice, but we can’t find any virgins in this school.”


The fun starts even earlier….

I set up on-line banking and entered the usual type of password with upper and lower case letters, numbers and a few “special charcters”. I couldn’t log in to my accounts. The “help desk” explained that my password had upper case letters and “special characters”.

I asked why did the software accept an unacceptable password?

They explained that the enrollment program was different from the routine log in program….. They then explained the log in rules to me so I could create an acceptable password.

Good luck….. The stupidity has been automated.
