As part of my job, I have to be livescanned (fingerprinted) from time to time. Today I went in and the gal was proceeding with no problem. It’s done electronically, with a scanner basically reading my fingerprints and sending them to the state and federal databases.
It’s pretty easy. First both thumbs, then all four fingers of one hand and then the other. The last thing she had to do was each pinkie finger separately.
For some reason, the machine kept rejecting the scans for my pinkie fingers. I asked her why it was a problem. Her response? “Oh we find with old people, their pinkies are sometimes more problematic.”

I remember the good old days when they had to do my fingerprints with an ink pad and… uh… I mean… never mind…

My husband had this problem when they decided all dock workers had to get a TWIC card. None of his fingers would print, so they couldn’t give him a card, but he couldn’t work without a card… What a mess.

Did you accidentally try to poke her eye out with that pinky finger, then? 🙂
