Today Mr Lavoie decides to order a mexican pizza.

Today Mr Lavoie decides to order a mexican pizza.

The call center operator advises him against choosing it, because his health insurance forbids it. The call center wonders how Mr Lavoie will pay the desired pizza because his bank account seems very low. The pitying opérator concludes by trying to sell a legal aid insurance to the poor Lavoie. Indeed, the call center notices, firstly, that he currently lives at his girlfriend’s flat, although he is married and, secondly, that he just bought a set of condoms. Opportunely, Lavoie is told by the operator that a lawer (whose phone number is immediately available) could be useful in case of divorce.

That scene is about to happen, within 6 years, when private data will have spread all over Mr Lavoie little life. Mr Lavoie’s today practice of social networking is fostering that sad destiny.
