: Smooth move.

Thanks. I just explained that I wasn't big on gender specific terms but promised not to do it again. (Magistrates in Canada are either "Your Worship" or "Sir/Madam")

Your Worship? Now that sounds even funnier than calling her sir! : Good thing I am not living in Canada or I have a feeling I'd be in a world of hurt in that situation. Not that I plan on getting arrested again though.

Wow! I'm surprised how many "nos" there are! Dh never has been, and I thought that was quite unusual. I have been fingerprinted multiple times, once for an arrest, and the rest for various jobs or volunteer positions.

Yeah I couldn't manage the "Your Worship"... too submissive to me. So "sir" it was, until I was threated with contempt of court that is.

Yes - volunteering at the kids' school

when traveling with my family, someone broke into our car and stole my parents' bags. the car was dusted for prints and so they took the whole family's prints as well...

Yes, I used to work for a governmental non-profit who required fingerprinting for all employees who worked with children and my bank has my index finger's print. I think my drivers license agency might have my prints on file, too.

I don't recall ever giving my prints.

Our state offers finger printing when you get your drivers license. It's optional and to protect against fraud they say. Um....NO THANK YOU!

They fingerprint you for employment??

Maybe it's different in Canada, but I have never ever been fingerprinted. I had no idea there were so many reasons to be fingerprinted other than being convicted of something.

There are types of employment in Canada where you will possibly be finger printed.

Yes. In Canadian kindergarten we took a field trip to the jail and all got fingerprinted.

Other: My thumbprint was required for a Texas Driver's License.

I got fingerprinted at a school fair as a child for safety reasons (like, in case I got kidnapped), and then I was fingerprinted as well for an arrest at 19. (Anyone who hears the story though, totally understands my side. In fact, the COP didn't even WANT to arrest me for it!)
post #117 of 124
Yup! I worked as a nature instructor and a day camp and had to be finger printed and have a backround check.
post #118 of 124
