I'm just getting so fed up. When I go to a store to buy some stupid thing like a pillow, they want to know my zip code or phone number. When I try to take a tour of a gym nearby, they won't let me unless I give a cell number AND my email address. And now I try to sign in to my old hotmail account and they say I won't be allowed access anymore unless I give them my cell phone number in the next 30 days. Guess that means I won't be using hotmail anymore, and it was my very first email! I've had it for almost 20 years but I DO NOT want to give them my cell phone number! I'm mad as hell and I won't take it anymore!!1 My philosophy is, the relationship between me and a merchant begins when I walk in the door and ends when I leave. Am I the only one who is tired of giving people access to ME?
