Do You Trust Me?

Whenever I sign up for something online, or buy concert tickets online, there is always a security code: A random bunch of letters and numbers thrown together, that I must retype into a little box, so the computer thinks I’m not a machine (ironic?).

I would just like to say, as a dyslexic, I hate that stupid box. I find myself rechecking the letters three or four times to make sure I didn’t mess up the non-word. Why can’t the Internet just trust me? I’m a real person.

Even as someone who isn't dyslexic (which I had NO clue how to spell, which is just mean...) I still have to check, recheck and recheck again those boxes. And I'm about to fill one in now to post this... grrr...

My particular favorite is when you can't actually decipher the words.
