Deactivation


The school district updated our security system. I was given a "keycard" a few weeks back. Since getting the new "key," I've misplaced it 3 times. I haven't seen it since last Monday, so, after a conversation with CH, realized I must call in and have it deactivated.


My question is this: To increase security, the district changed to a keycard system. My key card is big, has my picture on it, and says the name of the school district on it. If I leave it somewhere, anyone knows that it's a key to a school building. Since we have fewer buildings open, it'd be pretty easy to try it out and get free access, just by trying it out on a few school doors.
Before, I had basic keys that looked like they could open any door. There was nothing indicating who/what owned them, so, if I lost them, the likelihood that anyone would figure out what they were was quite low.

Why didn't we just stay with the regular keys? I never lost those!

AND... all they would have to do is Google your name to find out which school!

Today I got a strange call from an old friend...she said she'd gotten a call from someone who owns a small photo place (the one by McMenamins downtown). He'd found another friend's VISA card in the street! He'd googled the name on the card and found out she was a quilter in our town. He remembered that he knew a quilter...and called her. She knew I was friends with this particular person, so called me, hoping I would call my friend and tell her that another friend heard from a guy who owned a shop that her VISA is at his shop.
