People over 40 regretting adding birth year to their email address

OVER-40s are now wishing they had not put the year they were born on their email address.

Middle-aged people like Martin Bishop are regretting choosing addresses such as [email protected] back in 1995, unaware that one day it would make them sound really old.

Bishop said: “When I was 20 I thought this was fine and remember being happy it wasn’t taken.

“Little did I know that one day I’d be a 45-year-old IT technician and this would make me look like an sad old loser.”

Lucy Howard said: “I thought [email protected] was fun and flirty back in the day. But as a 40-year-old GP it doesn’t really give the right impression.”

Tom Booker, 42, said: “I was a massive fan of him at the time so my email is [email protected]

“So basically I look old and as if I shouldn’t be coming to any children’s birthday parties.”
