(KPLR)-- I brought my chair to the store parking lot because as much as I hate to admit it, there is some fun being part of the holiday shopping season.
 
I know some people prefer to shop in person because they worry about having their identity hacked on line.  Well, you can also have your credit and debit cards compromised in person.
 
Some of you are scared about all the personal information being gathered about you.  Spending habits, likes and dislikes that lead to a pile of ads targeting you in your mailbox.
 
Well here's what I say.
 
Don't worry about any of that.  Worrying about it won't do any good.
 
Enjoy Christmas.  And if you don't want anyone tracking your spending habits, use cash next year.
 
I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
