We decided we was going to have a pizza last night anyway I rang the pizza shop and the guy answeredand said Hello No 1 Gxxxxce Street do you require delivery? Now this just shocked me Iv never heard this before and apparently this guy was not supposed to say that on the phone becausee someone else came on and said sorry that was a new employee who did not know the system.. So I just said how do you know where I was phoning from?
He said its something to do with this computer software we have installed. I said yes I can appeciate that but I did not phone from my BT phone I called from my mobile. And a bit cageee he said I dont know how it works just that it does..
So I just got to thinking how he knew it and what software is there out there that is telling them this sort of information. I understand that yes they have to be sure they are taking orders from the right place for delivery but its just a bit funny doing it with mobile as I can see that it is done either by where the mobile is regersed to or by gps in which case you dont know who what or when you are being tracked by do you?

I just wondered if anyone else had come accross anything like this at all?. To me it seems as Big Brother has just got bigger?

Or you've ordered from there before and they have your details recorded.

To me it sounds like some "Person of Interest" stuff, Samaritan is watching you.

That's more likely.
And that's why I stopped ordering food from big fast-food restaurants, better order from small local cafes or even make own pizza. I've been considering a transition to homemade food only. This should be more healthy. Now I have plenty of time for practice.
