Have you noticed that personal privacy has gone the way of the 10-cent cup of coffee. Drive to the grocery store, walk into the bank, stroll the mall and you’ve been on countless video cameras. Try to slide through on a yellow traffic light where there’s a traffic camera and a ticket with a hefty fine will be in your mail in short order.
I happened to be waiting to check out some items in a store the other day when the lady in front of me asked me if I was Pam... I didn't recognize her, but said yes, that is who I am. She said you were the person who trained me for the job at the switchboard years ago.
BC (before children) I did work at a switchboard. That is now almost 40 years ago, but this lady recognized me. Not only did she know who I was, but also knew what I'd been doing since then and knew where I used to live at.
I was amazed. To think that someone I didn't even recognize, much less think about in all those years, knew so much about me was almost unnerving. It turns out that she has a neighbor who also knows me and I guess that is where she'd gotten her information.
I guess that is proof that I live a life that is like an open book with no secrets to be had. She also knew somethings about my children and they are good kids so I'm glad of that too.
It's true, that we just never know who is watching us to see what happens in our lives.
Today finds me still waiting for the birth of my newest grandchild. DDIL#5 has been admitted and will be giving birth some time this morning. I'm waiting for the phone to ring.
This Tuesday will be a VERY TERRIFIC one!
