July Theme Of The Month: Great Timing!

Social Insecurity, Part 2

| USA | Bizarre

(I am working a counter at a carry-out pizza place when this happens. Note: we use phone numbers to identify orders.)

Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I want to order a pizza to take.”

Me: “Okay, can I have your phone number please?”

Customer: “No!”

Me: “Sorry for having to ask. It’s just what we use to make sure you get the right order.”

Customer: “No! Hackers and the government are always trying to track me!”

Me: “It’s fine, sir. I’ll just use our store’s phone number instead.”

Customer: *calms down* “Alright.”

(Satisfied, the customer pays and waits in his car for the order. Being nice, I carry it to him.)

Me: “Here is your order, sir.”

Customer: “Thank you. Say, can you throw this away for me?” *hands me papers mixed with trash*

Me: “No problem…”

(As he drives away, I notice he’s handed me expired car insurance papers and an old bank statement. So much for protecting his identity!)
