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.

  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
