Have you ever had the TSA agent at the airport force you to throw away a fingernail clipper or a bottle of water? When I was traveling frequently, I complained about the TSA to the extent that friends and family avoided talking to me until I settled down. Now I don’t travel by air any longer so I can laugh when I hear about another crazy example of bureaucratic rules gone wild.
My grandson recently returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and on his return he flew on commercial planes. Of course, before he boarded, he had to go through the same kind of security check that everyone else does. So, he walks up with his machine gun on his arm. The agent tells him he has to throw away his can of shaving cream but he can take the gun right onto the plane.
I never realized that shaving cream could be so dangerous! Thank goodness we have the TSA to protect us from some wild eyed monster attacking helpless passengers and spraying them with shaving cream!
