Contrary to what Alanis Morissette would have you believe, having it rain on your wedding day is not ironic. In fact, pretty much no scenario she proposes in her song is ironic. At best, it could be defined as bad luck. I would have hoped that had I been in her position, my band mates, producer, label, friends or family would have told me this, saving me from saying so, but I digress. Let me get back to the topic at hand.
What is ironic? Being the CEO of an identity protection company and having your identity stolen. That’s ironic. Doncha’ think?
If you’ve seen the commercials, then you know that Richard Todd Davis is so sure of LifeLock’s identity protection services that he will share his social security number with anyone, going so far as to publish it on network television.
Man, his company must have an absolutely foolproof method of protecting their customers. Well, aside from the 20 drivers’ licenses issued under his information. Oh, and the guy that changed his birthdate on public record.
Other than that, I’m sure it’s bullet proof.
There’s been so many lawsuits filed agains the company that they are proposing a class action suit against the corporation. The service doesn’t protect you in the way they advertise, the million smacker guarantee actually doesn’t exist and their service amounts to nothing more than the fraud alert that you can place on your credit report yourself at no cost.
So Richard Todd Davis not only lost his identity 21 times (that we are aware of), he is now going to watch his company (that was cooked up by a convict sitting in a prison cell) go down the tubes.
Alanis, if you’re reading this, it’s not ironic. Just karmic justice.
