Thanks to an American Airlines group one boarding pass, I breezed through the 1st class line at the TSA checkpoint at DFW this afternoon. A lady standing in the short (10 people) line started to protest my “cutting in line”. The TSA guy supervising the line explained how the system worked, but she still wasn’t happy and proceeded to vocalize her outrage through the metal detectors. I wasn’t at all surprised that she was selected for “additional screening”.
Yes, the TSA is security theater. Yes, they’re food service workers with police powers. Yes, it’s totally unfair.
But only an idiot creates a scene in line at a checkpoint.
