I came across another blooper today. A friend of mine wanted to apply for a job at Macy’s and was asked to create an account and then login with that account to apply for the job online. Fair enough. What got her confused was the "@invalidemail" rhetoric in the text. Now, if Macy’s wants one of the applicant’s email or telephone number, there are better ways of achieving it than asking the user to enter the telephone number with an @invalidmail suffix. Some one was lazy while designing this web form, or perhaps someone thought that he/she was super smart in coming up with the @invalidmail suffix idea. This is not a good idea, it’s a bad idea.
