Big Brother IS watching...

I had occasion this morning to start up the electricity in the apartment to which I am moving. Previously, all bills had been in my roommate's name: I have no credit record whatsoever, since the last thing I paid for myself was a car that was paid off in the previous century. I had been living in a boarding house for the past six months while I waited for better digs; this is germane.

As I filled out the form, the phone number I had *before* I moved to the boarding house was already filled in. Now, I never did business with this company before, I am using a different computer from a different location... yet somehow, they knew that phone number had been associated with me. It makes one wonder.

Can't be the chip from my Covid vaccine, because I just got that.
