monsieur elderly frenchman, having remembered his username, continues to have problems logging into the email account he set up at the library’s computer class.
me: (after several more unsuccessful login attempts) are you sure you remember your password?
me: I’m sorry, I don’t know what’s wrong then.
him: but password is right! it’s fiddlesticks!*
(people start looking up from their computers)
me: no, don’t tell me that.
him: i put fiddlesticks! fiddlesticks is password! (writes “fiddlesticks” down for good measure and holds it up for me) see? fiddlesticks!!
me: shhhh! passwords are secret! secret!
*not his real password
