Every day, Michael plays James Bond, 007.
He goes in and presses his hand to a scanner that identifies him by a percentage. It records the time he arrives. When he leaves, he does it again, and it records the time he goes home.
He thinks it's a cool toy, a great game.
I think it's creepy. And lots of people agree with me.
Is it excessive?
I understand that it makes payroll much easier. I did payroll by hand for a company once, and it was the biggest pain in my a** and the thing I hated most about the job (aside from my boss!) But can't we just use key-cards or something?
What's next? Why don't we just put barcode tattoos on the backs of our necks, or maybe they'd like us to give a drop of blood every time we go into work?
It might be "fun" now... but it feels like a creepy slippery slope to me.
