So earlier in the week I went to my great-uncle’s house to set up and install his new combo printer/scanner, one of ‘those’ calls - you know the type.
anyway when I got there, this was literally the screen that greeted me from his desk, and I had to bite back an actual laugh but took a quick snap on my phone. I’ve seen screenshots like this posted before, but I figured people have had to deliberately go out of their way to install that much bloat, mal or browser tinsel.
I found one IN THE WILD. IT AINT JUST A TECH CLICHE.

How to Use the Infinite Number of Email Addresses Gmail Gives You
One trick you may or may not have picked up about Gmail is that you can add in periods anywhere in the front part of your address and it makes no difference whatsoever: john.smith@gmail.com works just the same as johnsmith@gmail.com. What’s more, you can add a plus sign and any word before the @ sign (e.g. johnsmith+hello@gmail.com) and messages will still reach you.
