I know. I was kidding back.
Pulling -or patting down- your leg, so to speak.
Besides, I don't want yout to find my hidden stash of tissues.
If you go through one of those full-body-scanners, they make
you take your Kleenexes out of your pockets.
There was a news piece of television yesterday that said those
patdowns would soon be a thing of the past. Too many people objected
to the graphic nature of the photos taken as well as the patdowns.
They came up with some new technology, thank heavens.
As if people can travel in this crazy weather...
I used to require the pat-downs because of my faux knee. I
can't just tell 'em I have a titanium knee, 'cause nothing
says I don't also have a knife strapped to it - so I'd get
the (less intrusive) pat-down & "wand" treatment.
I tell 'em as I approach security and for my Xmas trips,
both times they sent me straight to the new full-body scan,
with me holding my Kleenex in my hands above my head. I
suppose I could've pitched a fit about the xray picture and
insisted on a true frisking, but I think having someone
touch me, pat me all over while wearing latex gloves is a
LOT more embarassing and intimate than a crappy xray
displayed in a room away from the security lines. If
anybody gets their jollies looking at "full body scans" of
fat people, more power to 'em.
I didn't notice it in Atlanta, but in Richmond they made me
wait a few seconds after the scan. I could put my Kleenex
away, but they made me wait inside the scanner. Apparently,
the people viewing have to give a verbal OK to the agent
managing the exit door of the scanner. They weren't gonna
let me out until I passed muster.
Still, I prefer Road Trips.

I'd prefer Road Trips, too, you poor long-suffering traveler.
