The Anonymous Widower

How To Annoy Customers

I just sent this message to John Lewis Card Services.

I shall be cancelling my card at the earliest possible opportunity.

I have a problem with my left arm, due to it being broken by the school bully and a stroke which didn’t help.

So for convenience, i don’t use any web sites that use the shift keys in passwords.

Why do people do this?

Passwords should always be able to be typed with one hand.

For instance, why couldn’t I use say “donald=13”?

No-one would guess that!

  1. James Rather than take the drastic action you propose why not call or wright to John Lewis and explain the problem. You will not be alone. Re your discourse on the Airport situation the only realistic solution for the future would be a new airport. trying to fix either Heathrow or Gatwick is a waist of time & money. Both were built a long time ago and in the wrong place. Cheaper to build new (as with a house) and the land that is freed up could be sold to fund the new airport. We need an airport for the future, 4 runways minimum and good coms to London and the EU. Robin This email is confidential. It may also be legally privileged.

  2. Odd – my keyboard has a shift key on both sides and a “caps lock” key – so entering upper case one handed should not be too hard…
