Default Google's Pizza

- Hello! Gordon's pizza?

- No sir this is Google's pizza.

- Sorry, I must have dialed a wrong number?

- No sir, Google bought out
Gordon's Pizza a short while ago.

- OK. Take my order please.

- OK sir, would you like your usual?"

- The usual? You know me?

- According to our caller-ID database,
your last 12 orders were for pizza with
cheese and sausage toppings,
thick crust and crisp.

- OK! That's it...

- May I suggest this time you add ricotta,
arugula with dry tomato toppings?

- What? I hate vegetables.

- Your cholesterol is not good, sir."

- How do you know that?

- We cross-matched your phone number
with your name and your online medical portal.
We have the result of your blood tests
for the past 7 years.

- Okay, but I do not want those toppings,
I already take medicine ...

- Excuse me, but you have not taken
your medicine regularly.
We can see from our database,
4 months ago, you only purchased
a box with 30 cholesterol tablets at CVS.

- I bought more from another pharmacy.

- Such a transaction is not showing
in your credit card account.

- I paid in cash.

- But you did not withdraw that much cash
according to your recent bank statement.

- I have another source of cash.

- That is not showing as per your latest
tax return unless you obtained it from
an undeclared income source.


- "I'm sorry, sir, we use such information
only with the intention of helping you.

- Enough! I'm sick of Google, Facebook,
Twitter, WhatsApp. I'm going to an Island
without internet, cable TV, where there is
no cell phone service and no one to spy on me.

- "I understand sir but you'll need to renew
your passport first as it expired 6 weeks ago!

Really close to being accurate. Feels like every keystroke is recorded. Meta-data

Well, now that your ISP can sell your information, it doesn't even matter how you use the internets. Social media, Google, Facebook user or not, your life is for sale. Thanks Congress.
