Needed a good chuckle!

Password requirements are a hoot. Some places it's "yeah, you just need five characters" and 12345 is accepted. Other places it's a bit over-done ... 8 characters minimum with requirements of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and at least one symbol. You create a unique variety and get a warning message that its security is on the crappy side. Sometimes we can't win.

And then sometimes you have to change your password every 90 days!

OP: Try: "Cabbage0!" Obviously, you have to be able to remember it.

Oh, I failed. No punctuation...

Oh that's right I forgot about that. And yippee we get to start the process all over again ... especially frustrating when you try to change one number or letter and the "monitor" comes back to say the new password is too similar to the old.
