My understanding is the problem is only with 3rd party fingerprint scanners, which of course introduce a security risk to the user. Installing an Apple brand scanner if needed shouldn't cause the problem.

I think it's more likely the other girl is more freaked out by her parents' reaction than what happened. This kind of reaction occurred to my daughter when she showed her friends the age-appropriate sex ed book we had for her and the other more conservative (and more religious, go figure) parent freaked out and said they couldn't come over anymore.

Score one for the (not so) average Joe.
Jun 15, 2013 gfs commented on Dear Elliott Bay Books: Please Be Open the Hours You're Open.
Any store that doesn't pay their employees to do all the closing stuff they need to do after the posted closing time is doing it wrong. Sure, you can do stuff ahead of time and be ready to close, but you should certainly be open posted hours.

It's an unspoken contract with your customers. You'll spend your money here, we'll be here when we say we will, emergencies excepted.

In this modern age of cell phones and computers that all have the same time via the web, no clock should be more than a minute or so off unless it's for decoration only.

I worked retail in a mall as a teen, and if we closed early we'd get busted by the manager, as well as the mall. Same for opening late. We could be ready to close however, having mopped and cleaned and counted the till and everything else except printing the register report and locking the doors. But we were "open." And true, the last minute shopper was a PITA, but sometimes that PITA made your sales for the day and helped you earn your pay.

Workplace romance? Maybe not such a good idea regardless of who/what/where/how/why.

P.S. ALL couples to Cardinal Dolan, go fuck yourself.
Mar 6, 2013 gfs commented on Carly Rae Jepsen Cancels on the Boy Scouts Because of Their Anti-Gay Policies.
"When we booked this show for the Boy Scouts of America we were not aware of any policy barring openly gay people from participation within the organization."

They booked how many years ago?

Am I the only one who didn't assume the question author is a woman?
