I wasn't sure where I was going to share this, but figured you guys could use a laugh or three at my expense. Plus, it's a good lesson. (Ok, a funny lesson...*g*)
I've been corresponding with a couple friends from my work email. Most of us do that. However, there is some stuff going on and one of them is pretty ticked with me. (Ok, this is ME, there is more than one person ticked with me, but this is a specific one.*g*)
So she sent me an email. One part of the exchange was pretty heated, and I cut and pasted it to make a point about something that was being said.
We've all done that at one point or another.
It's never fun to argue with a friend, but it happens. So I handle that, and then I get back to work.
I go to the website for a state agency we deal with that I need to log into, sign into the program that automatically fills in my passwords, and start doing what needs to be done.
I click on the sign in and it says the password is expired... there hadn't been a warning (that I had seen), but ok. I've had to change it before. I just change the "2" at the end of it to "1". Again, not a big deal.
So I go back to the original sign in, and cut and paste the password so I can use that. I do it a second time to confirm and it's all good.
I work for awhile and then the system has a hiccup and boots me out. Ok. No big deal, I log back in... only the password doesn't work. The "new password" doesn't work either.
*scratches head* So I finally go into another screen and hit cut and paste, so I can see what might be wrong with the password... yes, oh yes... it was the *angry paragraph* that I had cut and pasted from the email. I tried that, and yep. . . *headdesk*
The state agency said that it would reset things, but we had to call them (because it was my SUPERVISOR's account!) and explain. It wasn't changed by the end of the day yesterday, hopefully it will today!!!
So what STUPID thing have YOU done lately????*G*
