One of my colleagues or rather all of my immediate colleagues sometimes require help when it comes to the internet. Today there was a ‘ Can’t remember my password’ day. So well, I guided my colleague to the “Can’t access account” link, from where we moved onto “resetting the password” and sending the link to re-setting the password to another e-mail address. Now, once upon a time, the colleague decided to punch in his wife’s email address as an alternate email address, which meant that the link to re-set his mail account’s password would go into his wife’s email account.
“Umm… I think I’ll wait a week. My wife is out of town. I think I’ll reset it when she comes back.”
” Can you undo everything?”
Me, amused answer back: “That’s ok! I did not send the request, so there is nothing to be un-done here.”
“Oh good”, the colleague answers with visible relief on his face.
I could not resist and said: “Never make the mistake of sharing your password with your wife?”
The answer: “oh yes!”.
Need I say more?
