I love my Social Security number.
It's too bad that due to security reasons I can't post it here,1 because it truly is a great number. It is especially great when visually displayed on Scantron forms.2
Unfortunately, the only time I use my Social Security number these days is to occasionally confirm my identity by reciting the last four digits. But those are the least interesting digits. I wish protocol called instead for giving out the first six digits.
Hey, I'm not the only one who likes the number. When I was in high school, one of my evil classmates stole my Social Security number and gave it to his employer so that I would have to pay the income tax.
My dad reported the incident to the IRS but told me later: "It would be an exaggeration to say that they were very interested."
2True, I don't fill out many Scantron forms these days. But in high school, I took the ACT, PSAT, SAT (twice) and three SAT Achievement Tests, so there was a stretch of time when I found myself looking at my cool Social Security number on Scantron forms almost weekly.
