I have a secret word that is used as a password with a government agency. I have to identify myself by license number and they use this secret word to make sure I am me.
The secret word is aardvark. Today two people insisted it was not a word, and a supervisor insisted that it was incorrect as I should have use anardvark since 'ardvark' begins with a vowel.
Some days even I wonder about the government. They are sending me a form so I can change the code word.
