I noticed it upon pulling away from the drive thru window, after telling the barista to have a good day: a small label with the name of my drink, the date, and the precise time my order was placed. And since I used my coffee card, it might as well have included my name.

So not only does Big Brother know where I was and when, he also knows what I’m drinking. 

This is just the kind of thing that the CSI/Law-and-Order/NCIS characters use on their shows to track down witnesses and suspected criminals.


If you’re a criminal, the law knows where you are. And if you’re innocent, keep those coffee cups handy as an alibi.
