Like most people who have nothing to hide, I operate under the general rule, "If you don't want to be spied on, don't be a criminal." That's incredibly naive, I know, but oh well.
Interestingly, I had a conversation the other day with the Verizon guy:
Dumb Verizon guy: "Your PIN number matches your last four digits of your SS number. You should change that. It isn't secure.
Me: "Why isn't that secure?"
Guy: "Someone could get it use it and set up other lines."
Me: "Did you just tell me that Verizon can be hacked?"
Me: "How is the hacker going to know my PIN if he doesn't get it from you?"
Guy: "Um. He could get it somewhere else."
Me: "Put a note in my file not to call me until after 3:00 pm anymore."
Guy: "I can't do that."
Me: "You have a computer and my file, right? Are you looking at it on the screen?"
Me: "Well just put a message on the file for the next guy not to call until after 3."
Guy: " I can't do that, you can tell them next time to call you back later."
Me: "Did you just tell me that you are going to continue to bother me at school, whether I want you to or not?"
Me: "Are you recording this conversation?
Me: "Then would you please forward this to your supervisor and inform him that your marketing strategy is PISSING ME OFF!"
