I wonder if the power hungry TSA
worker pulled the pilots FAA certificate (which they now have the power to do) because he/she/it felt the pilot was a security risk?
I got yelled at in JAN the other morning for grabbing my bags off the belt before one of the Thousands Standing Around agents could move them to the end of the line. It's nice when they take their job seriously, but this crap has gotten way out of hand!! My biggest beef is that THEY MAKE MORE MONEY THAN I DO
I'm sick of the following questions/demands:
"Do you have a laptop in there?"
"Remove your hat please"
"Please walk through with your arms at your side"
"Are you sure you don't want to take your shoes off?"
"Can I see your ID
"Geez - you guys pack like you're gone for a long time"
"Aren't you a little young for this job?"
The replies I wish I could make to the questions/demands:
"No, and if I could afford one, and actually had one, I would know that I have to remove it from the case"
"Really? I do this everyday and ha NO IDEA I needed to do that"
"Naw - I thought I'd walk through flailing my arms, or knitting an afghan"
"Yes I'm sure - I have dignity, am not in my parents house, they won't beep and I don't wear metal shanked shoes to work - because I know the hoops I jump through just getting to my darned office!!"
"Can I see yours?"
"Well, I will be gone AT
WORK for 4 days, therefore need things to wear etc... while not in uniform. This other bag is my food that I have to bring while on a 4 day trip because eating 3 meals a day, for 4 days on my wages is just not possible and the third bag is 30 pounds of information to get that airplane off the ground, through the sky and back on the ground in one piece, while keeping my life, my job and your grandma from wetting her gertle."
"Aren't you a little bored and tired of your highly paid power trip?"
Just needed to vent...
