Okay, not the entire TSA, but one TSA officer. One really, really, really stupid TSA officer. While he was supposed to be working as a “bomb appraisal officer”, he decided to pull pranks on travelers as they came through security. Seriously. Example:
As one passenger gathered their belongings (which had just emerged from an X-ray machine), the TSA worker displayed a “small vial of white powder” and asked, “Did this come out of your bag?” When the passenger replied, “No,” the officer asked, “Are you sure?” The traveler, according to a TSA memo, said, “Yea, I’m pretty sure,” and began to laugh. “Okay, just wanted to make sure. Have a nice flight,” the officer replied.
Seriously, WTF dude? Are you that stupid? Yeah, I suppose you are. At least it’s not as bad as the time I went through TSA at Burbank Airport with Scary Spice behind me — and half the TSA staff abandoned their posts to fawn all over her.
