Well, it took a couple of tries, but the TSA has finally convinced me to never fly again. I will get on one more airplane - the one that finally takes me out of this fucking country forever.
In addition to the usual indignities of taking off your shoes, emptying your pockets and having your body photographed and stored in a database, they're also now swabbing palms at the security gate. I mean, what the actual fuck? Oh, and of course you can pay $26 to skip the line - that's an add-on offered at the checkin counter now.
That's leaving aside the asshole employee who groped me on my way past. Not the "enhanced pat-down" thing, but actual honest sexual harrassment. On the way out of the scanner, I felt a hand on my ass, feeling me up.
In case you can't tell, I'm rather upset. Congrats, TSA - you've just cost the airlines another $1000 / year in business from me. Want to know why airlines are having trouble staying in business? Find a mirror.
