One time I couldn't remember my password to access my online account with my health insurance company. To retrieve my password, I had to answer a security question. "What was the make and model of your first car?"
Easy. Chevy Cavalier.
Wrong. Oh, wait. Must be "Chevrolet Cavalier."
Nope, still wrong. What the heck. Oh, many it's case sensitive. "chevy cavalier."
Wrong again. After the third failed try, my account was locked, so I had to call customer service. Bugger, bugger, bugger!
Would you like to hear the answer that I myself supplied to the question? You're not gonna believe this:
1984 Chevrolet Cavalier Station Wagon
What on earth was I thinking? (Or perhaps more accurately, how dumb can you get??)
Suddenly, I remembered that I had decided to be veeeeery specific, because, after all, we were dealing with my precious supersecret insurance records. Right.
Anyhow, I thought of this incident as I read this darn funny article today about just this situation.
