Total rant time...I am so tired (and irritatted) with having to give personal infor just to buy something! Every place I go to asks for a zip code, phone numer, or address at the register. Enough already! If I wanted to be on a mailing list, I would take the initiative to do it myself! I almost always give a fake phone number just to get it over with, but I was almost driven over the edge on Saturday. I went to return a skirt on Saturday morning. Nothing wrong with it, I just changed my mind. The SA starts the return and asks for my phone number. I told her that I didn't want to be in their system. She made a face and said that she has to have my info for the return. I again told her that I didn't want to give it. She said that she could not process the return without it. So, I just said a random number. She roller her eyes at me and said that she needs my real phone number. I was getting ticked off, so I just gave her my work number. She put it in and asked for my name and address. At that point, I completely refused. I don't know who is standing around and listening for my info. She cleared the register, put the skirt down, and walked off. I was fuming! A manager came to the register and finished the return without even speaking to me! WTH? I am now more determined than ever to not give my info. I don't want to be on any mailing lists and I don't care about a store's marketing research.
