Unprofessional email addresses

I've always wondered why some people set up or have email addresses that are a bit unprofessional. I work for a medical company signing patients up for free medication and a number of them will list their email addresses on them. I recently spoke with an older guy who had to be transferred to another department. In speaking with that department I was giving them the patient's info and when asked for the email address this is what they had listed: [email protected] Why on God's green earth would anyone want to have an email address like this? You hear stories all the time of people applying for jobs with unprofessional email address that are sexual in nature yet they still put it on their resume and job applications. Do people think these are funny and will garner a chuckle or do they honestly think they are going to get noticed by a hiring rep as being funny or silly and easy to get along with? Again, why do people set up unprofessional email addresses?

I suspect it is because we have not yet developed a vaccine to deal with stupid.

@4thtwin,
Yup. I knew a guy in his late 60’s who went by “bronco boy”. He couldn’t figure out why no woman would respond on the senior dating site.

When I told him to change his email, he explained that his college mascot was the bronco and he took his name from that.

What woman would have guessed that?

@4thtwin,
Some folk are immature (Mentally), throughout their lifespan. It's an ego-based attempt to supply themselves with attention - like having tattoos, wearing make-up, jewels, brandnames, designer beards, hairstyles, owning a lapdog, etc - It's All about fitting-in with, or keeping-up with what today's establishment is filling their heads with.

Having designer eyebrows, enlarged arses or breasts - Complete madness.
But, each to their own, say I.
Coz I don't care about this world.

Have a lovely day
