When I go to a pub, I usually keep to myself and surf GT. Invariably, there always seems to be some bar-fly who wants to strike up a conversation. After a chat with a "regular" the other day, I realized I had given up my first name, place of employment, high-school, number of siblings, and age. I'm not a good liar and when someone asks me a question, I give them an answer. But, I was a little steamed that I gave out that much information to a stranger. Not anymore! Does anybody use an alternate ID for bars/pubs? I'm going to start doing this. Too many weirdos out there.
