The X-Wala Id #atozchallenge

I am pretty sure most of us would have that one incredibly embarrassing email Id created during college or school days. My share of embarrassing ids are never-ending. In an attempt to sound all cool, hip and intriguing, I created email ids with names that would make one crawl under the blanket and never come out. 

The first one ain't that bad I guess - sinister_rajl ... yeah that was my way to tell the world that I am boisterous... kickass evil :P Sigh!! I was so lame!!

I still use the second one but only for blogging purpose. And if you receive an email from that id I am pretty sure it would be directed into your junk folder. Why? Because it has Triple X in it.

Imagine this scenario. I was filling application for Visa and the agent asked me my email id on phone. I calmly replied," l ... u ... x... x...x..."
After a long pause, he hesitantly said,"Excuse me ma'm"
It was only then did it strike me what a ridicule I had made of myself. "Yeah yeah that's right... yes it is triple x"

The next thing I did after hanging up my phone (and my head in shame) was to create a proper email id.

In my defense, I was in college and had no idea what triple X meant or any X meant ... and I couldn't find a combination with single X or double X (all ids were taken). Now I know why the triple X remained.

Along with ClaireParul and Shalini we have formed an Unconventional Alliance with A to Z co-host Pam Margolis as the ring leader ... all set to rock the party.

  1. Hilarious. One guy has his email id specialdosa. This is his gmail and yahoo id. Not joking. it is for real. His nephew's email id is sadadosa.

  2. I have one...and I continue to use it - crissdude :p

    Your ID is realllllly up there on the embarassment charts :p



  3. Hahah.. the guy must have got an attack.. and imagine, he did not laugh!

  4. ha ha!! My first was parul_lord that I stopped using. I was looking for jobs and it was too embarrassing to write that out on resume. :P

  5. That was too funny Raj! One of my id's has triple zeros! I am imagining the guy's reaction when you gave him your triple X ID ;)

  6. True! I made a very weird error in my first email id. We usually add our own birthdate to an id if we need some more characters to make it unique. I don't know what I was thinking of when I was making the account, but I added my dad's birthday to it! :D

  7. That is a funny story as you look back on it! Guess we live and learn. :) Thanks for sharing! My X word is X-ray Tetra.

  8. That one was damn good.

  9. Fortunately for me there was no email when i was in school. BUT when the internet became a thing I went the opposite way and chose a very very boring email id. i use it to pay my bils. cuz...BORING.
