The Joys of Flying

A TSA "agent" thought it was his (probably a fair assumption it was a "he") right not only to look through an airline passenger's belongings, but to leave her a little personal note as well.

The TSA’s security process has grown tremendously since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Gone are the days of quick security checkpoints and simple metal detectors, and in their place, invasive searches, a lengthy list of prohibited people and items items, and even machines that can see beneath people’s clothing, have become the new norms at virtually every U.S. airport.


A feminist blogger traveling to Dublin, Ireland recently made an unsettling discovery in her luggage: a U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent had searched the bag and found her vibrator, and apparently felt inspired enough to leave a handwritten note.


”[The] fact that a TSA agent would leave a note like that is pretty offensive; it’s definitely inappropriate and unprofessional.”

  Raw Story

Unprofessional? Hourly wage snoops are unprofessional? What’s this world coming too?

....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
