I am never, never, ever going outside again for anything. Not for any kind of training class or to be crowned president of the united states. I haven't flown in 9 years and I've discovered TSA, who has no sense of humor. I can't help it when he told me to take off my boots (which I had on for 4 hrs waiting to get in ) I asked him "are you sure" and he insisted I take them off and put them in this gray tub, so I did, and he picked them up and stuck his head inside to look, and dropped it and said "oh damn". I told him not too do that. That little fuzzy chinned goober didn't appreciate that I guess.
The flight was bad enough, stuffed in a cattle cart until the really nice lady next to me asked how was I doing. I told her just fine since Bartlett told me my herpes was in remision but I still had the clap, but going to Bellveau would get me a definite answer. For some reason I soon had all 3 seats to myself. Go figure.
And Bellvue ( how do you spell this damn place anyway) is bad enough. What's up with this town? It's just friggin weird.
And to think I gotta go thru all this crap to get back home. Will someone tell that boss of mine to get me a ferry ticket?
At least at the ferry they won't take me to a room to search all my clothes. ( and she wasn't that good looking either).
oh, and will someone please tell me since when is a 8 inch boot knife illegal????

TSA is just another miserable, lot of malcontents, earning about 23,000 dollars per year, and wearing really bad uniforms that seem to somehow boost their illusion of self-importance.

You just have to keep in mind the 3-1-1 rule, take your shoes off for xray, and no knives in your boots or pocket! And bring a good book.

I've found the 3-1-1 rule doesn't diminish their bad attitudes. Plus the 3-1-1 rule isn't equally enforced, meaning you are really at the mercy of the TSA employee's mood. You know those little empty travel bottles they sell in the store so you can fill them up with shampoo or whatever and take them with your carry ons? I mean...that's what they're MADE for. I had one of those filled with shampoo and got through the Seatac TSA just fine. On my return flight from DFW, they had a cow about that little bottle and confiscated it, saying "We don't know what's in this bottle. It isn't labeled. Could be anything." Plus, the guy going through my carry on got his nasty, ink stained fingerprints all over my bluejeans. But back to the bottle...well with that logic, how do we know a "Head and Shoulders" labeled bottle has shampoo in it? It could have suntan lotion or "Breck" shampoo or conditioner instead of shampoo, God forbid. It's splitting hairs and it's stupid.

On our last trip, DW bought liquid hand soap as gifts for her co-workers. Unknown to me, she was packing it as carry-on. They were kind enough to escort DW out so she could check it in as baggage. Fortunately, all the baggage stubs were on my ticket so we weren't charged. Just say'in they aren't all bad or morons.
