Your password will expire in 5 days

Of all the useless things in the realm of computer security, is anything more useless than the “change your password” nag screen? About once a month I get these nags from my company laptop reminding me that I have to change my password soon. So my choices are to either change my password now, or keep getting nagged every day until I’m forced to change the password. Why not just force me to change the password? What’s the purpose of the nag? Does anybody really spend more than a few seconds coming up with their next password?
