Big Brother Is Watching Itself

| IL, USA | Extra Stupid

(I was work as a teller. Our credit union has just gotten ID scanners. I am trying to explain the process to one credit union member after finishing his transaction.)

Me: “We also have the option of scanning your ID so you don’t have to have it on you when you withdraw money.”

Member: “You’d have all my information on your computer?”

Me: “We already have most of it from when you set up your account. This just brings up your ID for transactions.”

Member: “No, I don’t think I’ll do that. If I do that, then the government will get all the information off my license! I can’t let them have that information!”

(The member leaves. I turn to my coworker.)

Me: “So, he doesn’t want the government to see his government-issued license.”

Coworker: “Apparently.”
