Paypal!

April 19, 2017 3:05pm CST
I am locked out of my paypal account, the genius that I am. I can never remember my new password + with this keyboard and it's sticky keys.. I was going to buy something on ebay but ended up trying my password so many times that I am now locked out of it. I hope I won't have to contact customer service because... A) that's a pain in my assets and B) I don't know which number is listed on the paypal account though I could probably guess, it wouldn't matter as it wouldn't text my current number... I am a pain in my own butt sometimes.

I hate being locked out of accounts. I hope you're able to access it soon.

Me too, and the minute I do I am going to change my phone number so that I can just make a new password... I can still buy from ebay, but I did want to use my paypal account instead...

@ScribbledAdNauseum I never bought on eBay, but PayPal is the safer router to buy with right?

@infatuatedbby Yes. Ebay and Paypal are sister companies I believe, actually. I've only bought once before from ebay...

I am going to wait and see if it lets me in sometime tomorrow. If not I will have to call, and the last time I did that? It was a pain to deal with. I hope it wont' come to that.

I had to call Paypal once because of my password. They're really nice, once you finally reach someone. Good luck.

Thank You. It's been years since I've had to contact them. I remember we had someone who was very very hard to understand. My ex handed me the phone and even I had trouble, I'm usually good at deciphering accents.

@ScribbledAdNauseum - I must have been lucky. I had no trouble understanding the person that I spoke to. A rarity these days.

@teamfreak16 I wouldn't say that... I have had my fair share of clear voice, native speakers... but there are still plenty of call reps that are based in different countries. It's the Indian ones that I have the most trouble with, followed by the mumblers.

I have a notepad on my thumb disk with all my passwords on it. I also have a little cheepy $ store empty booklet offline that I have all my passwords in. My memory is shot so I have to have the info somewhere.

I really need to start doing this myself... I only have about five passwords, but I rotate between them. If a site says "you should change your password.." well I do.

@ScribbledAdNauseum ........I have about the same amount I go to daily. My depression makes it hard for me to remember such things at time so I need the added help.

I am such a pain in my own butt that I now have an app on which I store all my passwords. It has been a lifesaver.

I should probably do something like that... I rotate about five different ones, but still...

@ScribbledAdNauseum I only rotate three, unless I have to add a symbol and then it just gets confusing!
