Pet Peeve of the Day Vol II

     People who refuse to order things over a secure site on the internet because they think someone will steal their identity. The media loves to hype identity theft. The truth is it is very rare and happens mostly to people who make a mistake in their finances. It is very rare (if ever) that you lose credit information on sites like Amazon.com or other prominent, trusted sites. Join the 21st century people. Your credit is encrypted and secure. Even if it is compromised, you are protected by the credit card company. Stop making my job more difficult with your insecurities and grow a pair.
