In an age where surveillance and monitoring are all too easily misused, the idea of a camera in odd places can seem a bit weird and even a little creepy.
Even when cameras are where they’re supposed to be, it can mean that you’re being watched by who knows who.
I definitely cover my webcam to keep unscrupulous eyes from peering through watching me in my own home.
So, I was a little leery when I found out that McDonald’s had began putting cameras in their dumpsters.
For what? I said.
My first thought was that they wanted to do that to possibly catch dumpster divers, but then I thought what would somebody be trying to find that they could sell in a McDonald’s dumpster?
Then I thought well maybe they’re putting the cameras in the dumpsters to catch homeless people from rummaging through them, which I thought was a rotten thing for them to do.
But neither of these are the case.
