I still have to take my damn shoes off. I hate that!

Sandals my friend. I used to not wear sandals so I would make sure to wear dirty smelley socks.

I almost wore them, and my girlfriend insisted that I should... but I refuse to sit in that disgusting plane with my feet sticking out. After all, I was flying US Airways.

I have done the smelly socks on purpose routine though.

Oh, and this time, they had a machine that puffs air on your in lieu of someone patting you down. I stood in this little phone booth thing and air blows all over my torso and crotch areas. I was offended, and a little excited by it. I asked if I could do it again and the TSA lady didn't like that all. Actually, I'm kidding... I don't talk to those TSA people. I feel like they're just waiting for a reason to cavity search you. Every airport's different too... at Harrisburg International (yeah, can you believe that? It exists) the TSA people are all happy because only white people fly out of there, and there's hardly even any of them. But then in Philadelphia, they wear their latex gloves all day in giddy anticipation.

No shoes, no liquids, no nail clippers. I'm tired of it. And every time I'm waiting in line to board, I'm behind this know-it-all smart ass whose always like "Yeah, why don't they just do ratial profiling? You think that old lady's gonna hijack the plane with her knitting needles." I resist the urge to punch these people in the face, regardless of their cavalier "I'm gonna say what everyone's thinking" attitude.

We had a lady in front of us with 4 carry on bags basically tied together so she could call it one.

She then walked through security without taking off Glasses, Hat, or Purse.

TSA made her take them all off.

Her response was that TSA did it on purpose and is racist.



If someone cavity searched me I'd be pooping on them

I was searched throughly last week on my flight from KCI to O'Hare because I had a special marking on my boarding pass. The TSA guy tells me he has no idea how they pick their candidates but of the dozen or so guys they search each day I had to be one of them. They opened and searched both of my carry-on bags that are both jam packed, and it took forever for him to pack it back together again. And all of us were searched again before we board. Why the hell am I searched the first time for? Maybe that's what I get for flying the day after the London arrest. But I'm certainly not happy about it.

Yeah, I know how that is... that's how they really keep it "random." I guess some airlines print a checkerboard patters on an inconspicuous portion of your bording pass and boom... instant search. Meanwhile, the Ayatollah strolls onto the plane.

I had a horrible flight from Toronto to Boston, taking off in a thuderstorm. I remember a stewardess jumping into an empty seat and putting on a seat belt after we hit some turbulence. Never saw that happen since. It was bumpy the rest of the way to Boston.

Here's some more depressing airline news; it seems that the instances of male flight attendants are up dramatically. Plus, the female stewardesses aren't nearly as hot as they used to be.
