And make them spell it. They will probably get it wrong. Some home security companies have the family choose a very simple code but have the spelling for a different word. Example, a friend of mine had "dog" as the code word. When required to spell the word, as asked by the security person, it is spelled "c_a_t" so when they spelled "d_o_g" home security knew to send help right away while the burglar thought they were safe. They were all fine btw.

I used her idea when dealing with vendors and a sneaky MIL and sneaky, b!tchy SIL. Vendors are confused at first but loved the idea.
