Friday night, you probably tired after work week and heading to home trying to relax in a bus or train, listening music.
What are you thinking about? Peri peri barbecue chicken pizza or Margarita?
Young gentleman in overcrowded train carriage is calling to “Parkside pizza”. He’s speaking really loud as one of his headphones is remaining in an ear.
“Hi, John is here, can I have Peri Peri barbeque chicken, the large one, please, and diet Coke, one can, I’m not expecting anyone today. Yeah, 3 Central street, Caringbah, my number is 0413879302. John, John Smith. I can pay right now, my card number 1234… and expire date is …”
All passengers, who are sitting near by know about John life style, his name and address, and credit card number.
Can you imagine a young lady Mary in Parkside pizza who’s taking his order? What do you think she does? Most likely she would wright down all John’s details on a small paper. On the same page you would probably find all customers details she took order from today. She might put the paper in a bin tomorrow or would continue to collect other people personal details a day after. Each time you’re visiting “Parkside pizza” you most likely would be able to find the list near a pos machine.
