Pretty funny
I was waiting for a response that said the number of characters exceeded the allowable limit.

At my current place of employment, we no longer get a paper check or a paper record of direct deposit. Instead, one must login to a particular site to see the paystub. Password changes appear to be required monthly, and there is no advance direction as to what might be acceptable as a password. As a result, my password is currently quite obscene and, among other things, questions the parentage of the IT people who designed such a moronic system. If I ever find out who they are, I plan to hurt them.

I can sympathize. When I was w**king, I had to log into a number of customer websites. These sites required a password change every 3 months. I finally figured out a system for new passwords.
I had a book on Scotch Malt Whiskey that listed 300 distilleries alphabetically. I figured that would last me 75 years LOL. I started with Abelour and worked my way through the book
