                                        ORDERING A PIZZA

 CALLER:    Is this Rocco's Pizza?
 GOOGLE:  No sir, it's Google Pizza.
 CALLER:    I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry.
 GOOGLE:  No sir, Google bought Rocco's Pizza last month.
 CALLER:    OK. I would like to order a pizza.
 GOOGLE:   Do you want your usual, sir?
 CALLER:   My usual? You know me?
 GOOGLE:  According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times
          you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses,
          sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on  a thick crust.
 CALLER:  OK!  That's what I want ...
 GOOGLE:  May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta,
          arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat
          gluten-free thin crust.
 CALLER:  What?  I detest vegetables..
 GOOGLE:  Your cholesterol is not good, sir.
 CALLER:  How the hell do you know?
 GOOGLE:  Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number
          with your medical records.   We have the result of your blood
          tests for the last 7 years.
  CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza! 
          I already take medication for my cholesterol.
 GOOGLE:  Excuse me sir, but you have  not taken your medication
          regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a
          box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 
          4 months ago.
 CALLER:  I bought more from another drugstore.
 GOOGLE:  That doesn't show on your credit card statement.
 CALLER:  I paid in cash.
 GOOGLE:  But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your
          bank statement.
 CALLER:  I have other sources of cash.
 GOOGLE:  That doesn't show on your last tax return unless you bought
          them using an undeclared income source,which is against
                    the law.
 GOOGLE:  I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole
          intention of helping you.
 CALLER:  Enough already! I'm sick  to death of Google, Facebook,
          Twitter, Whats App and all the others. I'm going to an island
          without internet, cable TV, where there is no cell phone service
          and no one to watch me or spy on me
  GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first.
