I’m pretty confident in my midsection, but in front of 100 people in the security line at DIA at 6:30am?! C’mon. I’d rather be flashing it on the beaches in Miami.
I recently got molested by a vertically challenged, tsa agent with daddy issues in a uniform 2 sizes too small who’s sexuality is questionable. I’m not sure who should have been on the receiving end of a cash exchange for “services” , but I can say its been a minute since I’ve been felt up like that.
Last time was when I was in Germany pre-9/11 and being touched that much by a frauline was something new for me and would have been new for most Americans at that time! Today we eagerly jump into clicking full body X-ray machines and then get groped more than high schoolers in the back of the bus on a field trip when the teacher wasn’t looking.
TSA, especially through Denver, is nothing more than grown up kids with fake badges, inferiority complexes and false senses of power. Those are ingredients for an “I’ll show you who’s boss now” situation. I recently heard a comedian say that TSA is one of the only places he felt he could just walk in and be the manager. The level of intelligence and competence of these people is ridiculous.
But be careful!! If you are too outspoken or if you grope back, you’re in trouble!! According to this site that talks about the mistreatment of the TSA agents, they are now considering outspokenness about contempt for the agents or the system to be an act of terrorism. There’s even a story of a Colorado woman who grabbed and twisted, with both hands, the left breast of a TSA agent when she got frustrated with the security groping protocol. Unfortunately this woman is facing a felony count of sexual harassment. She’s 61 years old! That would have been quite the scene to witness.
I wish I had some answers on how to deal with the frustration I feel when I pass through the airport security line. I get that security is necessary because bad people do exist…thanks terrorists! And another special thanks to the underwear bomber in 2009 who was the one who prompted the full body x-ray machines to be installed in all US airports. Awesome. I do know that I refuse that machine at all costs; is that the only choice I still have?
Life really is a trip when the acts of a few completely damage the liberties of the rest!
