Heard: Shift + 3

I work for a lobbying shop downtown and our interns for the summer started this week. On Monday, I was in charge of getting them set to log onto our computer network. We use a standard password as a default which includes the pound sign. I proceed to give the intern his log-on information and go back to my desk.

Three minutes later, I get a knock on my door. One of the interns is there and says "Mr. [My Name], I can't figure out how to enter that number sign you gave me in my password."

I can't tell you how fun this summer will end up being.
