Funny Story: My daughter (who is in the sixth grade) got a hold of my iPhone one time and was able to change my firm picture to a picture she took of me just after I woke up one morning. I didn't realize she had made the change until I sent a few emails internally and noticed that the thumbnail picture next to my name was of me unshowered and unshaven with bedhead.
