Privacy watch

I just got a call from the folks at Citibank about my Mastercard. It seems that on Wednesday my card experienced "unusual amounts of use". This guy proceeds to rattle off a list of charges and asks me if I purchased those items. "We're checking to see if there has been a security breach, ma'am". No, I assure him. It was indeed me who bought the 12 inch strap-on dildo, thank you for asking.

Seriously, part of me is pleased they care if my card is being used by someone else. But I hate knowing that my shopping habits are being tracked so closely. I should use cash more often.
