SAFEST WAY TO DISPOSE OF AN UNWANTED CREDIT CARD

According to rules I made up, but have followed religiously for years. Sorry, Identity Thieves! Not today.
  1. 1.
    Cut card in strips vertically
  2. 2.
    Next cut the strips in half horizontally
    Right in the middle of the numbers, so you cut each number in half.
  3. 3.
    Mix all the pieces together
  4. 4.
    Take half of the pieces and throw them away
  5. 5.
    Now throw away the remaining pieces in a DIFFERENT garbage can
    This step is really the linchpin of the entire strategy.
  6. 6.
    Enjoy your secure identity for the rest of your life
    You're welcome!
