This reminds me of when I was leaving the US in March 2002! With the rest of my family, and after running a bit late leaving the apartment, ended up just throwing my soap bag into my carry on because my bags for the hold were too full. Well I forgot I had a pair of old safety (YES SAFETY) scissors in there!
Of course as we all know safety scissors are called safety scissors because you cant cut flesh with them, but does that matter to the TSA
? Does it F**K!!! I was treated like a criminal, with US army standing over me with machine guns while I was questioned as to why they were there!
At times I still cant believe that I was treated this way! I mean come on even if I had a standard pair of scissors, or if some terrorist did, how wud i take over a plane with them? :S
Oh and back to the original story, so what! my schools i've been too always gave us scissors!!!! yes they were kept in a tub on the side so we could use them as need be.
