A cop writes on her experience with TSA

and it ain't flattering.
"Do I have the right to refuse this search?"

TSA doesn't understand what 'random' means

I fly in and out of Seattle-Tacoma Int'l. several times a year. Each time the TSA procedure is different and each time it is amateur hour. I have a metallic prosthesis in my left wrist and bilateral total knee replacements. I stop the entire line every dang time. They have no procedure on how to deal with me. EVER. I tell them each time and each time it is new and fresh and exciting for them.

One other thing I've noticed is that -EVERY- TSA employee I've had contact with has had an Indian-Pakistani / Middle Eastern sounding accent and is not fluent in English. Apparently there are no Mexicans in the greater Puget Sound area who need patronage jobs. (That would be helpful to me as I speak Spanish.)

Sounds like the live version of "Fifty First Dates".
