Remember your first email address. You thought you were being really clever and hip, but not so much.
It slowly dawned on you that you’d better come up with something more mature and professional—that what you had wouldn’t look good on a resume, and would probably clue the ladies in on the fact you were a massive geek right off the bat.
My first email address was firstname.lastname@example.org.
True story. And I thought I was so awesome! I couldn’t believe I was the first one to think of it. When I got it, I was like, (fist pumping in a Dwight Shrute-ish motion) Yeahhh!!!!
I hope some other geek has it now, and I hope he’s having better luck with the women than I did.
What’s the worst email address you’ve ever had or seen?
