Please stop doing this

Here's a rant I've been meaning to share for a little while.

In all my reading of police reports I've come across something almost as shocking as the fact that people don't always lock their doors.

Lots and lots of people carry their Social Security cards with them at all times.


For what purpose? Why would you possibly need it? And don't tell me you don't have it memorized. 

Hide that card somewhere safe, lock it up, and hide the key. I can't believe how many people have had their Social Security cards stolen just because they left them in their wallet and then left that wallet unattended in their unlocked car. Goodbye, identity!

I'm not unsympathetic. I'm just appalled. What a waste! Sure, your identity can get stolen other ways, but why make it that easy?

Here's to better decisions.
