My mother needed to create a new email address. She usually used her work email but wanted a separate email for personal use. She asked my brother and I our opinion on her email address choice.
Mom: what do you think about "twoteabags"?
My brother: ...........................
Me: Mom, is this a joke?"
Mom: What's wrong with "twoteabags"? I like two tea bags in my cup of tea.
My brother: Mom no! You can't use that!
Mom: Why not?! It's available.
Me: Have you heard of "tea bagging"?
Mom: No, what's that?
My brother: We can't tell you, just trust us and don't use that as your email address.
Me: It's a sexual reference and I can't tell you what it is. Just please think of something else!
The best part of this whole conversation was that my mother was also going to use this as her user name for a dating website. My brother and I could not stop laughing and my poor mother was like what is going on! I just want to set up an email address!
If you don't know what tea bagging is I probably would not google it. I would be afraid of what would come up. I'm also a bit worried of what search terms will now lead people to this blog.
