Emily Jade confessed that she set her own name as 'toenail clipping' as a joke, but didn't realise how bad the gaffe was until it was too late.3Emily shared her blunder on TikTokCredit: @emiiyjade 3It turns out every email she sent had the joke name on itCredit: @emiiyjade 3She even sent a test email to see if other people could really see the nameCredit: @emiiyjade
She explained on her TikTok account @emiiyjade that she originally set her name as 'toenail clipping' when she was 11-years-old.
"At the time for some reasons I thought it was hilarious," she said.
But Emily had no idea that all of her contacts could see what she'd set her name as too, and since she never changed it everyone she's ever emailed or text since has probably seen it.
"I've added people from uni, I've spoken to brands, I've done work experience and you're telling me that I could be 'toenail clipping' in the contacts," she laughed.READ MORE ON REAL LIFEHARD LIFE I’m a traveller mum – most people wouldn’t survive a week living like we do
But her blunder doesn't end there, it turns out the name on Emily's email account was set to the same thing.
"All this time when I've been emailing people from my personal email it's been saying it's from toenail clipping," Emily fumed.
To make sure that she wasn't being paranoid, she sent an email from her personal email to another account.
Sure enough, the email came through from 'toenail clipping' leaving her completely mortified.Most read in LifestyleWHOSE BOOZE?

She joked that it had gone on for so long that she might have to actually change her name.
Viewers couldn't believe no one told her about the mistake, one commented: "The fact that no one brought it up, they just accepted it."
And someone else said: "I did this too and my name was 'Christmas leftovers' and I used it to apply for my last job."Topics

John Bolton Threatens 2024 Presidential Run to Stop Trump: Im Prepared to Get in the Race
Former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton said he is prepared to run for president as a Republican to stop his former boss from tearing up the Constitution.
On his social media platform Saturday, Trump called for a series of extreme measures to install himself as president – including the “termination” of the country’s Constitution.
“So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?” Trump wrote. “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great “Founders” did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”
Trump has since made an effort to walk back the statement.
On NBC’s Meet the Press Now Monday, Bolton told network host Kristen Welker he might feel required by duty to jump into the GOP primary in order to stop Trump’s second reelection bid.
“I think to be a presidential candidate you can’t simply say I support the Constitution, you have to say I would oppose people who would undercut it,” Bolton said. “We used to have a thing in the House of Representatives called the House Un-American Affairs Committee. I think when you challenge the Constitution itself the way Trump himself has done, that is un-American.”
Welker was visibly taken back by Bolton’s declaration. She asked him, “What does your timeline look like? What would cause you to cross into saying what you’re saying now and actually being a declared candidate for president?”
Bolton said all prospective GOP candidates are aware of what Trump has said and he expressed a fear none might have the fortitude to publicly disavow the former president. He concluded if he does not soon see people being floated as Trump’s challengers begin to do that, he will announce a bid.
Bolton did not offer a definitive timeline.
“I’m prepared to get in the race,” he said.
