9:15am: I place a call to a computer company to order for some replacement parts I'm greeted... "Hello Mr.Smith, what can we do for you today?". I reply with my order.
10:09am: I jump online for a little bit to check on somethings. I check my e-mail, an innocent looking e-mail is waiting for me "Mr.Smith Requested information enclosed". Inside are advertisements for porn sites. It's deleted with disgust.
10:30am: I surf over to amazon.com, I'm greeted... Welcome Back Mr.Smith. After a brief check on some prices I head out the door to do some shopping.
11:10am: I stop by a gas station, use my gas card to pay and retrieve my recipt. I noticed on my recipt printed... Thank-You Mr.Smith please come again!
11:30am: I pull into the local SuperMarket, grab what I need and head over to the checkout area. My "club card' is handed over in an attept to save a buck or two. As my purchases are finished being rung up & I'm handed my receipt, the check out clerks says Mr.Smith, would you like help out to your car? I kindly reply No-Thanks.
