With stressful holiday travel looming, let’s take a moment to enjoy a random hilarious moment from… an airline. JetBlue, you crazy for this one.
A Twitter user recently shared a screenshot of a JetBlue security question that reads, “What is the name of your favorite child?” Uh, excuse us? We were just trying to log in to our JetBlue miles account, and suddenly we’re being forced to pick a favorite kid.
JetBlue Security Question Goes Viral
“JetBlue savage for this,” the user who shared the original screenshot wrote. And #FACTS on that one.
It turns out the actual question was “What is the name of your favorite childhood friend.” The question was most likely cut off when the user clicked on the question and took the screenshot, though they would have seen the whole thing before selecting it, a JetBlue spokesperson told People.
That didn’t stop JetBlue from poking fun at the question.
“Say it. You have one,” they posted, along with a retweet of the original post.
JetBlue’s fans and the Twitter community at large quickly began responding to the tweet. “I’m showing this to my dad. My name is incorporated in all of his passwords,” one wrote.
“Can it be ‘depends on the day,’” another Twitter user wrote.
Or, as another said, “can’t be someone else’s kid? Mine aren’t all that.”
All in all, JetBlue racked up thousands of comments from fans and social media users. Meanwhile, the rest of us are combing through our many accounts, hoping we won’t be confronted with a security question that might be too difficult to answer.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
