    I think most were being sarcastic and the rest are probably trying to hide their identity. Never know how many Whitey Bulgers are trying to not end up in the slammer.

    If that's the case what does it matter if a client watches or not?

    One thing that has been shown in these replies is most don't want someone/thing watching what they are doing.

    I dunno maybe ask someone who has an issue with it? Think I was pretty clear that it doesn’t bother me in my post.

    Why so serious? It’s the offseason, let your hair down once in a while.

    Guess I didn’t catch your sarcasm? Are you watching me?

    Personally I feel a little weird possibly being watched on camera. Don't care I'm being watched but kinda feels like I'm being snooped on.

    Went to the ford f-150 plant where you walk the catwalk and see the trucks final assembly and thought man what it must be like to work here and be watched by people all day long. No chance to scratch your butt or dislodge a booger anytime.

    I don't mind cameras. Heck, I've got an 8 camera system at our shop. It's hard for a customer to say "you weren't there" when they have cameras. I know with a lot of our vacation properties I make the guys snap a few pics while they are there so we can let the clients know the property was serviced.

    While working as a auto tech for most of my life, I had a place where I was the only person working in the shop. It was kinda like my own as I could arrange it like I wanted to so it would be a nice place to work. The boss came out one day and said he was thinking about installing cameras in the shop and office. I told him right then that if he does that, I'm going to quit and he can do all the work.

    He never bothered to do it. He was going to install them so he could watch me from the office where he sits all day! He was the type that would question you if you didn't have a wrench in your hand and weren't physically working. He walked in on me reading a service repair manual to find out the procedure for fixing the problem and ask why I'm not working! Needless to say, I put up with his crap for way too long and walked out.

    This should be in the rant thread.lol
