A senior trying to set a password

Posted on: April 29th, 2016

A little IT humour:

  • Windows: Please enter your new password.
  • User: cabbage
  • Windows: Sorry, the password must be more than 8 characters.
  • User: boiled cabbage
  • Windows: Sorry, the password must contain 1 numerical character.
  • User: 1 boiled cabbage
  • Windows: Sorry, the password cannot have blank spaces.
  • User: 50bloodyboiledcabbages
  • Windows: Sorry, the password must contain at least one upper case character.
  • User: 50BLOODYboiledcabbages
  • Windows: Sorry, the password cannot use more than one upper case character consecutively.
  • User: 50BloodyBoiledCabbagesShovedInYourMouthIfYouDon’tGiveMeAccessNow!
  • Windows: Sorry, the password cannot contain punctuation.
  • User: ReallyPissedOff50BloodyBoiledCabbagesShovedInYourMouthIfYouDontGiveMeAccessNow
  • Windows: Sorry, that password is already in use.

We’ve all been there when setting a new password. If you take anything away from this story it is that setting a new password is frustrating regardless of your age or if you are computer savvy.
