Being a criminal

Our school is making us get fingerprinted. Apparently case workers and teachers do the same thing, so I suppose it's for a good cause... but frankly, it's obnoxious.

See, I've already BEEN fingerprinted at the VA, and I'm fairly certain that the government has run all sorts of rigorous background checks on me (true story, I did steal a pack of gum from the grocery store when I was 5). On top of all this, I have to go out of my way to get fingerprinted, and then to add insult to injury, I have to pay $43 for the pleasure.

Oh, and by the way, given the tone of recent emails from our higher-ups, it sounds like maybe 10% of our class has actually done this so far. Do you think they'd back down if 60% of our class just... refused?

  1. I was 7 when I stole my pack of gum and I got 2 delicious, sweet, free pieces in before my dad made me take it back and apologize(!).

    Apparently the Man doesn’t know about that because my fingerprint card came through just fine.

  2. I see you’re part of the 10%, Lyle…
