Yatpay's Blog

Welcome to my blog! I've been told this is a "tumble blog" which means I pretty much just post interesting pictures, videos, links, and random thoughts all day. There's no real common theme. Feel free to comment on any entry or if you like, contact me directly.

The trouble with taking pictures of strangers
The trouble with taking pictures of strangers
For whatever reason, taking pictures of random people really weirds people out sometimes. I suppose they must assume that I'm some kind of creep putting together a secret scrapbook of their daily movements.. or something. I think more likely they don't think at all.

Anyway, today I got yelled at for taking pictures of people in my usual supermarket, Wegmans. I was standing in line and started shooting a few pictures from the hip just to practice aiming without using the viewfinder. As I was waiting I heard someone saying something about "pictures" and "look • mumble mumble• again!" After I got out of line, a woman stopped me..

Wegman's Employee (WE): Excuse me sir?
Me: Yes?
WE: Were you just taking pictures?
Me: Yes.
WE: Of the employees?
Me: Of a bunch of people.
WE: What are you taking pictures for?
Me: I like taking pictures.
WE: Well you are on private property and I'm going to have to ask you to stop taking pictures. You're making people uncomfortable. Can you delete those pictures?
Me: Sure, not a problem.
WE: Are you done shopping?
Me: No, I've got one other thing.
WE: OK.
Me: [Starts walking away]
WE: [Shouting after me] No more pictures!
Me: ..I got it.

Of course, having asked "can" I delete my pictures and not "will" you, I had no problem saying "sure".

While I finished my shopping I noticed that she was following me around! Presumably to make sure I didn't slip away in the jungle-y produce area to take more pictures for my spy ring.

When I got home, I looked through the pictures and it looks like I captured the "busted" moment!
Oops
Oops

It's a bummer that I can't take pictures while I shop anymore, but the story behind this picture almost makes it worth it.

On another funny note, I tweeted about the incident while walking out to my car:



And Wegmans responded!


Take that, anal Wegman's employee lady!

The next time you find yourself cursing out "those no good welfare bums", keep this quotation in mind.


Yes, there are people who flagrantly take advantage of the system and bend over backwards to sit at home and do nothing while they wait for their government checks to roll in. These people are so frustrating, though, that I think they get more attention, making it seem like it's the norm. I feel like it's worth supporting a few deadbeats if it means helping the people who lost the "situation you're born into" lottery and genuinely need some help.
