The establishment is concerned that Google Glass wearers will take photos or videos of other customers without consent

A Seattle restaurant has made its stance on Google Glass clear: leave them at home, or get out. 
Seattle-based diner Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge released it's official policy on Google Glass via Facebook yesterday. The post said a recent customer was asked to leave the restaurant when they insisted on wearing Google Glass inside. 
The restaurant is concerned that Google Glass wearers (also known as "glassholes" in some cases) will take photos or videos of other customers without consent. 
Here's Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge's entire Facebook post:

We recently had to ask a rude customer to leave because of their insistence on wearing and operating Google Glasses inside the restaurant. So for the record, here's Our Official Policy on Google Glass:

We kindly ask our customers to refrain from wearing and operating Google Glasses inside Lost Lake. We also ask that you not videotape anyone using any other sort of technology. If you do wear your Google Glasses inside, or film or photograph people without their permission, you will be asked to stop, or leave. And if we ask you to leave, for God's sake, don't start yelling about your "rights". Just shut up and get out before you make things worse.

The comments are a mix of supporters for the ban and those who believe Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge should get with the times.

One particular commenter said: "You lost my business and probably dozens of my friends will be boycotting your establishment! Learn how the technology works! What if I wanted to take a picture of my food.... Idiots!" 

To which Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge owner, Jason, replied: "Ohh no...You mean we wont have a flock of google glass wearing man children stinkin up the joint. Shoot!!!! What are we going to do! The Google Glassers Boycott is actually hilarious."
So don't think you can bully Lost Lake into allowing your tech specs inside. No means no. 
This isn't the first time Google Glass wasn't readily accepted in the wild. Last month, San Diego commuter Cecilia Abadie received a ticket when local police spotted her wearing her Google Glass while driving. The ticket states that her charge is "Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass).”
