If you were shopping at <insert business name here> and a store manager asked you to remove your Glass, would you find another place to take your business?

Part of my first step of engaging in a conversation about why he feels that way needs to include some gentle education. And the end result would need to be balanced against my options and the inconvenience of replacing what that place of business provides me.Bodhipaksa – 2013-07-02 17:57:09-0400I completely agree with +Tony Landa. There’s much to be lost by becoming an argumentative #glasshole. In the end it’s their shop, so cooperation and polite education is a good first move.Tim Boyd – 2013-07-03 12:16:14-0400I was approached by a store owner in Portland.  He just wanted me to know there had been a bunch of “talk” about whether store owners were going to ban them or not.  So I asked him what he thought and he said, in an enlightened way, “Our store is great, people come in here all the time and take pictures.  It’s almost a tourist destination.  For me, the more people that know about us the better.”
