Was momentarily stopped about my carry on cutting tool.Told the attendant it was ok .
I had a fingernail clipper deposited into the barrel. That tiny nail file was considered a weapon. Oh, and on that same flight they served a meal with a plastic knife and a bun that was similar in texture to a cannon ball. While trying to slice it in half with said plastic knife it slipped and cut the hell out of my finger. Far more damage than that nail file could do. Brain dead bureaucracy.I had my mustache scissors confiscated.
That’s fishing gear , nothing wrong with that ,kinda light though , probably for small cricks 🧨I had a large homemade M80/silver salute boom boom stick confiscated at DFW.
Funny thing, I had flown with it in my backpack probably 15 times before it was discovered. I knew I was missing a big firework from high school, but never was able to find it till the lovely TSA agent located it for me. Bomb squad, interview room... Fun stuff.
Maybe this isn't in the right spirit of this thread, but a fun story regardless.
You mean like the pimple faced kid groping my crotch at Newark before letting me board?tSA are contract employees or direct hired?
I've never had any issues other than the above and we always remember the bad not the good.
They are just doing a task, I don't take it personally, that comes from a brown brother.
