Price discrimination comes to restaurants

No way, Bear. Come on. :)

I've already admitted every illegal thing I have ever done in my life in a previous post.

Except for one. I ran over and killed a seagull when I worked at Cedar Point. Seagulls are protected in that area, and killing the scoundrels is illegal. It was an accident, but I didn't turn myself in. It was a hit and run.

Oh crap! Now Cedar Point Police are knocking on my front door. That was fast. ;)

I've already admitted every illegal thing I have ever done in my life in a previous post.

I once had a job that required that I take a polygraph test. The basic idea behind a polygraph is to ask the subject questions that you are pretty sure they will lie about, and some others that you are pretty sure they won't, so that you can tell the difference in galvanic skin response. That way, for the questions you really care about (e.g. have you ever stolen from an employer) you can tell if they have or haven't.

So. I had no idea this was going to happen. First, the guy shows me the machine. Then he tells me he'll ask me the same set of questions twice. Once without the polygraph, and again with it, so that I would not be taken by surprise by any questions. And, I was in in the Berkeley. So, let's just say that there were plenty of questions about which lying would have been, well, less revealing. I decided, before the test even began, that my goose was cooked. He would know either way, so I may as well just have fun with it, and answer every single question 100% honestly. There were many questions that were answered with "Well, last night, at the party in the house, I..." But, the "money questions" (have you ever stolen from an employer) I was able to say no to---completely honestly.

We get through the first round of questions, and I have to say, it was pretty liberating. He looks at me, and says: "Well, I can tell you've been pretty truthful with me, so there's no real reason to actually hook you up. I have enough for my report"

Much to my shock, two days later I got the job.

The detector was probably broken. Either that or they saved money by buying a fake one. LOL
