Megan Finger’s angry tweet about her admin-assigned ‘fingerme’ username and university email went viral in 2014
The show hosts were shocked when the red woman’s Tweet, which doesn’t seem to have aged a single day.
‘THANK Central for my awesome email address and username…… Like really,’ the original tweet read.
In the segment, Jon explained that Central Washington University has a system where the student’s last name is followed by the first two letters of their first name/
In this case, unfortunately, it resulted in ‘fingerme’, which was set to be used as an email address and username for four years.
As he explained, his co-host, Toni, covered her mouth in shock.
‘Finger me, dammit. Oh God, she said.
Before you declare, there must be a clerk to catch awkward combinations.
“You’d think they’d put the third one, like Finger Meg, oh, that’s not great either,” she laughed.
This left her equally shocked co-host in stitches.
The couple laughed at other possible combinations, but even found the g-rated options funny.
They posted the hilarious segment on their Instagram on Wednesday, where it quickly went viral.
“Four ROUGH years ahead for Megan,” Jon wrote in the caption.
The post has been viewed 242,000 times and has attracted thousands of likes and comments.
‘I was just listening to this part on the way home from work yesterday and I totally lost it in the car. I’m talking about slamming my steering wheel and throwing my head back and cackling so hard! It was just what I needed to drive home from work,’ one man said.
“You could have so much fun with when people ask for her email she can say ‘finger me’ and they’d be like ‘sorry’ and she’d be like yeah kidding,” another added.
And it seems Megan isn’t the first or last person to have her name turned into a punchline following an administrative decision.
“My SAT test was MILKMI,” complained one woman.
The tweet was revived by Ryan Dunn and Toni Lodge on their popular podcast
As another explained: ‘We had our first initial and then full last name in high school. I went to school with a girl called Nusrat, the first name started with an ‘A’. Anusrat.’
‘When I was an exchange student at the University of Iceland, they used the first 2 letters of your first and last name, then email@example.com all at once.. my name is Pernille Nicolaisen so my email was Penistudent,’ said another .
Some admins revealed that they get the final say when it comes to awkward usernames.
‘I create accounts for people at work and we do the first last name and one day I had a Steve Hart so the username would be SHart.
Embarrassing emails sent to the wrong recipient
Others shared their stories on an entertaining Reddit thread
“I decided this morning would be a good time to email my friend “just had a great poo, thought you should know”. But I accidentally sent this to another contact with the same first name , who happens to be the lead game designer at a local company where I interviewed a few years ago.’
‘I wrote an email to my girlfriend, instead I chose my boss, Serge. “OMG I LUV U LOTS BABY” or something like that. I saw what I did and sent him an email explaining what I just did.’
‘Several years ago I wrote an email to my shrink telling me how I felt more attracted to women than to men. Unfortunately, I accidentally sent it to my husband instead of my shrink.’
I do tech support with a friend of mine and he was wrapping up the day so he forwarded me an email from a client and wrote at the top, “I don’t have time for this.” Needless to say, he somehow also managed to send this to the client, who promptly replied: “Well when do you have time?”.
‘I asked my boss if I should bring anything else and my boss looked at me confused even after explaining to him what ‘Shart’ meant and he told me no one else would make the connection if he didn’t did — I decided to still give him the ‘start’ instead,” said one woman.
Others took the opportunity to ‘roast’ Megan – proving that the awkward moments associated with her university username and email address have outlasted her four years of study.
