What Entertains You In Long Security Lines?

Sat Feb 18, 2006 8:17 am

what entertains you at long security lines? One time at LAX the line was out the door down and the road. And there was a small bump and people rolling their luggage didn't notice it. SO the luggage fell down. It was hilarious!

I get to go through the Medallion/Premium checkpoint line and I have to admit I am amused by the blank stares and argumentative nature people can exhibit when they are told to get out of the line because they don't meet the requirements to be in it.

I especially liked the way one person told the checkpoint lady they didn't give a "rat's ass" that they didn't meet the requirements and that they were staying in the line. The lady explained if they didn't leave the line they would escorted out by security and arrested. They started moving after that one.

When applicable, I too go through the Medallion/BusinessElite/First checkpoint, however, not all airports have them  Sad, though I do chuckle a little bit at Xmas time when everyone else is waiting on a 30 minute line, and I zoom in and out within 90 seconds  Smile
When I have to wait with everyone else at airports which don't have priority security checkpoints, I laugh at how inefficient the screening process is, and how incompetant (most) TSA workers are....

Ditto on the EliteAccess for CO, most places I fly have some sort of Elite line through SkyTeam so it works great most of the time. Oh some of the TSA screeners they are a breed totally to themselves, funny how many of them have nothing to say while others are friendlier that friendly.

When I have to stand in the line I am amused at just how many people have no idea that they have things in their pockets or that they are wearing the worlds largest steel belt buckle......totally blank face when asked to take it off!  Smile

I enjoy watching the people in line getting pissed off, because they decided to show up 1/2 hour before their departure, and think they should be moved to the front of the line. Never get tired of the *sigh*, and constant looking at the watch.... it makes me laugh.
