me: Bad password? I don't give away bad passwords. Not unintentionally, that is. What password are you using?

me: what? Are you sure? It starts with an 'i' and an 's' and it has a ':'?
user: yeah.
me: So when I wrote down "Your password is: generic2011" you decided that "is: " was part of the password?
user: Well, Isn't it?

Luckily there was gin and tonic in the vicinities so I was able to keep up appearances.
