I just completed a Web site registration where they asked me for a secret question and answer in case I forget my password. One of the possible questions was “In what city were you living at age 14?”
What is up with all these secret questions that only make sense for people whounlike mepretty much lived in one or two places growing up? I can’t be sure I would consistently answer questions like that, or questions like “Who was your childhood best friend?”, since I moved every one to three years throughout my entire life.
I lived in two different places the year I was 14Huntsville, AL and El Paso, TX.
My childhood best friend changed every year or two, mostly because my city of residence changed that often.
So those questions make no sense at all for me. Unfortunately, some sites try to make the secret question choices so incredibly obscure, they pretty much make it impossible for me to pick something I would actually remember. So my secret answer becomes just another password of sorts to write down somewhere so I don’t forget it.
Aargh. Just wanted to vent.
