I just found out that one of the companies that just took over our area in an 1.7b outsourcing deal recently (you figure it out), is charging employees $25 to reset forgotten passwords. At first, I thought how evil. Then I thought about it. Now I think it’s genius, and that all companies should be doing this. When you consider the amount of man hours and tickets that go into resetting the passwords of lusers, it might just be the thing to help you remember! Stop and think for a moment about your co-workers for a moment. How many of them do you know of that abuse the helpdesk because they, giggle, “I forgot my password again! And I just got it reset 2 days ago!! Damn system!!” No, damn brain of yours that doesn’t know how to manage passwords! Cha-ching, $25 please!
What do you think?
