Seattle diner forces customer to remove Google Glass or leave

With Google Glass beginning mass production in the next year, a lot of interesting cases are going to come up regarding etiquette. Nick Starr, a network engineer from Seattle, walked into the Lost Lake Cafe, a 24-hour diner in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, and was forced to either take off his Google Glass headset or leave the diner. According to Starr, he had visited Lost Lake multiple times wearing Glass, with no problems until the most recent visit.

Starr was very vocal about the treatment he received, stating on Facebook that he would “love an explanation, apology, clarification, and if the staff member was in the wrong and lost the owner money last night and also future income as well, that this income be deducted from her pay or her termination.” Apparently, the owner of Lost Lake made headlines in March for banning Google Glass from another establishment he owns – 5 Point Cafe, saying that it’s “about privacy.” The owner, David Meinert, had a staff meeting at Lost Lake telling all servers to ask anyone wearing Glass to remove it because they want their customers “to feel comfortable.”

This clearly isn’t the last we’ll hear about Google Glass etiquette controversies. It’s definitely an interesting topic, and we’ll keep you updated on other interesting stories like this.
