So my school is apparently adding a debit system (think college meal plans) with a required PIN... Ok fine. The only problem is- those that pay with cash (read: most people... It's a high school... prepaid hardly happens) also need to use the PIN. Doesn't that invade some kind of privacy? It's made me (and a few of my friends) mad enough to challenge the lunch program and have the PIN removed from cash users. Parents are also granted access to a list of things their child has eaten. For the sake of discussion, it's called the POS system. I kid you not. I almost shit myself laughing, and then read the cash users need a PIN... Not cool. The proposed solution- Bring exact change, when asked for PIN put exact change down and walk away. I'm not sure how that will fly... The lunch service peoples (what is the 'politically correct' term for lunch lady?) are pretty stupid and by the book. Reasoning- They jacked up ALL prices by as much as 50% (after saying "We made money for the first time last year. We will not raise prices"). And they are pocketing that money because they have a monopoly on selling hot lunches at school. Now they're making CASH trackable. Thanks for reading my rant. I'd post a name/number to call and bitch at, but 1. I don't have one, and 2. Isn't there a rule about posting personal information of others? So do I even have a leg to stand on? I'll quote the paper tomorrow if this is still alive, but it pretty much says "we're trying to make things more like the real world/college, but parents can see everything you've eaten anyway."
