Banksy mural on Northcote Road? Health anxiety affecting relationship: help needed. Free tickets for Independent Schools Show.

Last Updated on : 14th October 2014

Dear NappyValleyNetter,

Mr NVN is trying to teach our children “safe surfing” on the internet.

To reinforce the message he instigated a new household rule: anyone opening a family computer and finding the last user still logged in could use that account to embarrass the owner.

So when Mr NVN found my son’s email open one Saturday morning, he sent a cute baby picture around all of his school friends, whilst delivering a lecture on the importance of prudent account management.

My daughter thought this was hilarious.

Last weekend he announced the rule no longer applied and it especially no longer applied to his own work email account.

“Oooh”, I asked, “what did she do?”

I knew it had to be my daughter, she was the only one with sufficient computer skills combined fatally with a lack of awareness that his work email was probably off-limits.

“Well the good news is that she didn’t tell my CEO he smelled,” he said.

“And the bad news?”

“She sent him that fancy dress photo of me sporting a false chest dressed as Lara Croft.”
