After last week’s column, we were told by a friend that the humor was good because everyone needed a good laugh these days. Thus we will try each week to include a joke which will hopefully increase the laughter locally. Thus we offer the following:
While going online to check recent banking transactions, I was told I had to reset my password. The ensuing conversation with the bank computer about re-setting my password went as follows:
Bank: Sorry, your password has expired. You must register a new one.
Me: Did anyone discover that password and hack my computer?
Bank: No, but your password has expired. You must get a new one.
Me: Why then do I need a new one as the one I have seems to be working
Bank: Sorry, you must get a new one as they automatically expire every 30 days.
Me: Can I use the old one and just re-register it?
Bank: No, you must get a new one.
Me: I don’t want a new one as that is one more thing for me to remember.
Bank: Sorry, you must get a new one.
Bank: Sorry, you must use more letters.
Me: pretty roses.
Bank: Sorry, you must use at least one number.
Me: 1 pretty rose.
Bank: Sorry, you cannot use blank spaces.
Bank: Sorry, your password must be longer.
Bank: Sorry, you must use at least one capital letter.
Bank: Sorry, you cannot use more than one capital letter in a row.
Bank: Sorry, you cannot use that password as you must use additional letters.
Bank: Sorry, you cannot use that password as it is already being used.
