Last night, I printed out a small piece of paper for my wallet that has emergency phone numbers on it in case something happens to me. Simple, right? I went to a local Office Depot store to have the paper laminated. I was told that I needed to enter my name and phone number in the kiosk and my name will be called.
What? I’ve never heard of this just to get something laminated. Why? I asked an employee why this is needed, she said there are a lot of reasons. Really? I am very wary of where I leave my name and phone number, that information could be used by the wrong people, or end up as spam on my phone.
Heading for the door, another employee asked me if there is something wrong to which I replied that it was just ludicrous that this company wants my personal information just to have a tiny piece of paper laminated. She tried to explain the situation to me to which I replied that I’ll take my money elsewhere and left.
Take that, corporate America! Anyway, this is a random collection of Nikon photos I snapped along the way this afternoon, and nobody asked for my name and phone number! Today’s weather has been so beautiful with full sunshine and 82 wonderful degrees! Mojave Desert love.
