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


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!
