Do these guys at Radio Shack ever get on your nerves, asking you for a bunch of personal data when you're just there to buy something as simple as a couple AA batteries? I think we should inconvenience these people as much as they do us. A while ago I was in Enid buying a printer cable adaptor and the guy asked me for my name. "Ghosseindhatsghabyfaird-Johnson," I replied. (blank look of confusion) "How do you spell that?" he asked, obviously not wanting to know. "With a hyphen," I clarified "Once more?" he asked "Ghosseindhatsghabyfaird-Johnson" "Could you please spell that?" he asked, glancing at the half dozen people waiting behind me. "Oh... just like it sounds," I said nonchalantly. Putting down "Johnson", he went on and asked about the address. "Washburn, Wisconsin, 14701 N.E. Wachatanoobee Parkway, Complex 3, Building O, Appt. 1382b." I replied. Almost through writing all this down, I said "Or did you mean current address?" He said, (becoming irritated) "Yes. Current address." "Diluthian Heights, Mississippi, 1372 S. Tinatonabee Avenue, Building 14C, Suite 2, Box 138201," I replied quite slowly. Waiting until he finished I said "No, wait, it's North Tinatonabee Avenue." Annoyed, he backed up and changed it. "I think," I interjected. "And is all this correct?" he asked in a standard manner. "Of course not," I replied, leaving, "If you want my real name and address, look at the damned credit card receipt." A little mean, I must admit, but no jury would convict me... at least, none that had been to Radio Shack.
