Toms Toothpaste Interpreted as a Threat

Category: Aviation

tomstoothpaste.jpgI know I'm not the first person who's complained about these things, but my respect for TSA security is so low I could scream. Twice recently I've had these idiots rummage through my bag in search of liquids and when nothing is found have had things randomly taken or bizarre demands made. Just now, my toothpaste was taken because it was, apparantly, over their 3-point-whatever limit even though the toothpaste tube has gone through the x-ray at least 8 times since I got it. Screw you, you stinking jerks. You owe me $5 and a written appology. A few days earlier the exact same bag of toiletries was rummaged through, including the toothpaste, which was not taken. That time, I was scolded for not having the correct sized clear plastic baggy, and given a new plastic baggy. How in the name of god does the size of the pastic baggy impact anything?

My respect for TSA = Zero. You are doing nothing but harrassing people and commiting crimes against decency and intelligence.

You have my sympathies. After arriving back in the states from a recent trip to Europe, the first thing we were hit with was a ridiculous series of "security" measures that really served to remind us how whipped as a country we have become.
