This morning on a very crowded bus I was seated and minding my own business, reading when a woman who was standing next to me proceeded to make a phone call. I and the ten people immediately around her couldn't help but overhear her entire conversation. Her phone call was to someone about her amended tax return.
During her call she proceeded to very clearly give out the following information: her entire name, her entire social security number, her current address and her former address, her children's names, her marital status and how much she should be receiving from her return. Now, I'm an honest person so even though I have a great memory and could reiterate all of this information - I won't. I also won't call the IRS to ask them to redirect her refund check to my address so I can steal her money even though she made it sooooo easy for me do so.
What the H*&%^ was she thinking giving out that much personal information in a public setting? Why are people so stupid? Maybe I should have said something to her but I didn't. All I could think as I got of the bus was stupid, stupid, stupid!
