Reminds me of the Jack E. Leonard gag:


My doctor told me I was crazy, and I said I wanted a second opinion. He said "You're ugly."

It's pretty much all your're going to get at those pay scales.

Am not saying all TSA agents/guards have issues, am not saying that at all; but there does seem to be a surplus of two rent-a-cop groups. Those on an ego trip because they have a *badge*, and others just there for a paycheck. Both seem to come from backgrounds with dubious experience for the job, but again things are what they are.

You don't have to search long nor hard to find reports like this: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...irport-n341596

Mind you these are the things that get out to media, which makes you wonder just how much is shoved under the rug.

It seems that whenever you can bring race into it, the story becomes that much better and more profitable.

Wow....what you posted is a perfect example of a "very specific opinion." I'm trying to wrap my head around how you came to all these definitive conclusions based on this story.

First, this incident had nothing to do with race and no I'm not white. Second, a sense of humor is highly subjective, open to interpretation and individualized. So maybe you would "laugh with this girl and zing at her" but that doesn't mean others would. I would be highly offended if I was handed a note like that. There is a reason that respect and civility is expected at work. Those two qualities transcend race, culture and are for the most part well defined. Therefore, if you practice those two things at work you will never get in trouble. But if you practice your personal sense of humor at work you have a chance of ending up like this stupid little girl who thought she was being "funny" with her silly note.

I love funny. You're now taller and more handsome than you used to be.

Mall Cop is now TSA? I haven't flown in quite a while.

Yes, in retaliation for her idiocy let us insult her entire race or least her profession. That really shows who’s superior.

Anyway: She fired.

Wherever you come into contact with these people they're always "rapping" or repeating words from rap music like a loop stuck in their brains.

If first note had been written grammatically correct, and second didn't lift word for word lyrics to a rap song I'd put it down to just simple ignorant behavior. But clearly this former rent-a-cop TSA agent was influenced.
"These people"? "Influenced"? WOW...



People sure are brave on the Internet. Try saying that to someone's face and see how far it gets you.

Yes yes. We're just too sensitive. THAT'S the problem. Not that a woman thought it would be funny to pass out random insults. She acted like a kindergardner.
