Seattle Glasshole demands employee firing over bar’s Google Glass policy

Valleywag:

The most absolutely awful thing about the story of Nick Starr is not that he exists, but that there are surely more people like him: the Seattle IT drone threw a Facebook fit when he was asked to take off his face-camera at a cafe. “I would love an explanation, apology, clarification…or her termination.”

Here’s your explanation – you’re a douchebag.

    In similar news, a baby is suing his parents for being denied his pacifier for the period of one hour last weekend.

    Unfortunately, such is the general attitude of a lot of people in The state of Washington…..mainly Seattle and the surrounding areas. I live here so I know. A private business is a private business and they can enforce whatever policy they want, so long as it doesn’t infringe upon a person’s rights. Just because this guy thinks he has a right to quietly record people in this private restaurant doesn’t mean he actually does.

    About 30 seconds of googling revealed that this douchebag is trying to make a name for himself as a professional glasshole.

    All this lazy, incomplete coverage is just rewarding his bad behavior.

    Look like he quit the Internet for a while after being called out for being, well, a genuine asshole. His Twitter and Facebook accounts are no more.

        No, I saw it on the internet, so it must be true!
