    OT-2 TSA Rant

    Flew from San Diego to Reno for PRS. TSA Precheck/Global Entry.

    Get to SAN and Precheck is shut down. OK, fine. Get the BS laminated card that says I'm Precheck (God knows how many folks have touched this POS piece of paper...but I digress).

    Get to the point where I'm supposed to remove my laptop (per the BS laminated card, all electronics larger than cellphone must be removed) and place the stuff in my pockets in the tub. I reach for the tub and the TSA guys says, "Oh, no! Wait! You can't touch the tub. And you should put your laptop back in your backpack but place your cellphone in the tub." WTF?!?!

    OK, fine. Get scanned. No problem (even with artifical knees and a Citizens Blue Angels Edition Chronograph on my wrist). Get to the other end of the scan line. Remove my stuff from the tub I'm NOT supposed touch.

    Per the direction of the TSA agent at the end of the line, I GRAB THE TUB I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO TOUCH, and place it on the rack carrier, which the TSA agent promptly moves back to the front of the scan line...without so much as a wipe down.

    WHO THE F' IS RUNNING THIS CLOWN SHOW!!!!???

    F TSA...F THE MASK BS... I'm fully vaccinated. Deal with it people.

    Best Rant I have heard today. I went through the same thing last week from Jacksonville NC to ATL. Had TSA Precheck for 10 years and made the same trip at least twice a month. This trip, TSA didn't know if it was Tuesday or March.... F**ed up as a fishing helmet.
    Remember, the government knows what's best for us... Stay safe Owen and thanks for all you do. See you in September.

    Just curious, but how were you able to add text/edit in my original thread?

    Is it a system glitch?

    I have no idea! Must a glitch. I replied to thread by posting from my phone but no clue why it edited your message.

    Does raise an interesting point for our guru to address, dontcha think?

    Owen, I gotta check but I think I remember giving you moderator status which does allow you to edit other's posts.. being on your phone, maybe hit wrong button??

    I recall we chatted about moderator but wasn't sure it actually happened. Likely reason tho.

    That's what I get for fat fingering on my fone! ;-)
