Can someone tell me exactly what the fuck is going on with the TSA? I mean, seriously, are there any grown-ups working at that agency?
As if it wasn't bad enough that grandmas and military personnel and 8 year olds are subject to "secondary screening," now we have TSA agents who apparently get their jollies by playing practical jokes on unsuspecting passengers, like what transpired with 22 year old Rebecca Solomon on a recent flight home from Philadelphia.
I'd explain what has me so riled up, but this column by Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Daniel Rubin explains things quite well. Go ahead and read it. I'll wait.
You're done? Am I wrong or is that unfuckingbelievable? God knows you can't legislate common sense, but thankfully, Ms. Solomon's father is in a position to try. He's a legislator, and I hope he helps his daughter sue the pants off this guy, the TSA, and anyone else involved. This Totally Stupid Asshole should not only lose his job, but he should be forbidden to go anywhere near an airport. Like ever.
Airport security is no laughing matter - or, as my father (God rest his soul) used to say, "this isn't about shits and giggles."
Drop kick this Totally Stupid Asshole like the piece of crap baggage he is, and kick him and his juvenile sense of humor to the curb.
Today. Now. Our national security is at stake.
UPDATE: The above was written at 2:15 p.m. According to this article, posted at 3:40 p.m., the Totally Stupid Asshole is no longer employed by the TSA. Good riddance. Buh-bye, and don't let the metal detector hit you in the ....
