I was watching, or really just listening to a morning news show one day last week and they were talking about raising the prices at Disneyland. I kind of thought to myself it wasn’t really that big of a deal. It was only a few bucks. I just figured that if you couldn’t afford that amount, you probably shouldn’t be going. That’s just how I look at it.
They started playing music and I turned from the computer to see what they were showing and it was one of the amusement park rides of some kind. That wasn’t really what I was looking at though. I was watching the people in line. In order to get in, they scan your pointer and middle finger. I thought, what!?!?!?
It turns out they have been doing this for a while now. Almost a year. Man, am I ever out of the loop. Have you heard of this? It’s not so much I have anything to hide from. My biggest crime (that I got caught for) is a speeding ticket in 1992. But there’s something inside of me that says I don’t like it. I can’t give you a reason or say why I don’t but I just don’t. The only time I’ve been fingerprinted was in the hospital when I gave birth. They took my thumb and put it with the baby’s footprint. I don’t even know if they do that anymore.
Am I alone here? Has anyone been there or anywhere else where this is done? Does it bother any of you and if so, why? I almost feel like it’s an invasion of ME. Disney claims it’s for counterfeiting ticket concerns. What about those bracelets or something like that? I just feel creepy about this and I’m not really sure why.
