TSA: Share Your ExperiencesSubmitted by Daddy WarBucks on Fri, 01/08/2010 - 17:50
1. Once they were real nice to me when I left my cell phone in a scanning tub. One agent dropped everything to find my phone. I offerred him a reward when he brought it to me and he refused.
2. I was almost tazed because I asked the kid at the Au Bon Pain for my breakfast sandwich. No exageration. I had eaten my sandwich, was headed for the gate and stopped to apologize to the manager who was having a bad morning and misunderstood what I had said to the kid,(she had called TSA on me) While I was reconciling with her a TSA guy was standing behind me unclipping his tazer holster, then he backed away after he saw us talking. My wife was standing behind me so that's how I found out.
3. When we went to Philly for the Ron Paul rally there was a line over a quarter mile long in the airport waiting to get screened. Then a couple of agents opened another check point and rushed us through. They were really polite.
What's your experience?
