    "*enters password* - WRONG. *resets password* NEW PASSWORD CAN'T BE YOUR OLD PASSWORD... AAARRGGGHHH I've lived through this enough times to want to die, so I finally got tired and tried different password managers. I ended up staying with 1password. It's really easy to use, and has a very reasonable price. I'll never have to remember a bazillion passwords again!!!! FREEDOOOOM!!!!"
