Yeah, I meant to do that!

In order to make sure I haven't accidentally wandered into a look-alike website designed to steal my user name and password, I always enter both incorrectly at least once (often several times) before finally entering the correct combination.

As soon as I see that bold, red-lettered warning telling me that my user name and/or password are not recognized by the system', I get a nice warm, secure feeling, knowing that I am in the right place and not being spoofed into handing over the keys to my precious personal information.

At least that's what I pretend is the reason as I 'fat-finger' my login information (or forget it outright!) several times.

In truth, this is the electronic equivalent of tripping over your own feet in your office building lobby, and then trying to pretend that your sudden awkward stumble/lurch was part of a planned change in direction to allow you to take a whiff of the plastic flowers on that big fake potted plant in the corner.

'Yeah, I meant to do that!'

This is in the category with "surveying the land." When we are on a particularly arduous uphill walk, the Dearly Beloved will stop me to survey the land. He has finally explained to me that when a man does this, he is saving himself the indignity of explaining that he needs to stop and catch his breath. Ladies: when a man wants to stop for a moment and show you the grand vista below, ALWAYS say yes. Unless you're feeling very wicked.
