Identifiers Are For Life

(Customers can come into the store to buy books, or they can create an account with an e-mail address and purchase books online. The account is your email address and whatever password they choose. A customer and his girlfriend come up the service desk.)

Me: “How may I help you today?”

Customer: “I can’t access my online account.”

Me: “Okay, I can help. What is your e-mail address?”

Customer: “Um…” *stares at the floor*

Me: “Sir? Your email address?”

Customer: *quietly says something*

Me: “I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear you. Could you repeat that please?”

(By now, other customers are waiting for assistance. Suddenly, the customer shouts his email address, loud enough for everyone to hear.)

Customer: “Im-a-whore@[ISP].com!”

    So, the MALE had an address calling him a whore?

      Apparently so – you think if it were a woman it would have been OK?

        Can a man call himself a “stewardess”? He can call himself whatever he wants in his own address. But, as the term ‘whore’ usually refers to a woman, it is an odd choice.

        • Medusa Jordan

          It is certainly an odd choice, but I don’t see that it would be more understandable if it were a woman. It is considered an insult whatever way you look at it.
