I got the TSA to say they're sorry!Submitted by Dave7 on Mon, 12/23/2013 - 23:26
In airport recently, went thru security and "opted out." I'm pretty used to this process by now. The agent took my stuff over to the "pat down" area. I sat down, and he start rummaging thru my stuff, going in my bag with his stupid cloth on a stick thing. I said "hey what are you doing rummaging through my stuff?" He looked at me and said some irrational justification. I got the attention of his "boss" nearby and said "what is he doing going though my bag like that?"
The boss guy consults with another guy.....they realize that the agent is not supposed to be doing that. (They only go thru bags if something comes up in the xray like if you forget to leave your laptop out.) They told the guy to stop going thru my stuff. I said "yea you can apologize for that."
Under his breath, he said "I'm sorry." +1 for liberty.
