I wanted to log into your telecom but no I now have to sign up for Mytelecom (correction its still yours) so got through to security question page picked my pets name but cant go on because like thousands of pet owners my pets name is only 3 letters long and the person that designed this has decreed they must be at lest 4 letters long 

Some times i find it easier to use internet banking which must be secure than some minor web page logins

Please Mrs/Mr telecom geek fix this so i can sign up

Couldn't you make up a name and make a note somewhere?

I use lastpass to record everything like this and it's easy to keep things just a little more secure.

First world problems.

Seriously, the time you spent typing this up would've taken 10 times longer than just coming up with another password.

Change your pets name to 8 characters with a mixture of letters, numbers, upper case, lower case & special characters :)

I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

i'm afraid you need to adopt a new pet

do you seriously think telecom will alter their metastructure so you can key in your pet's name?
